Activism is a way of life at Mills.
Our students stand up and speak out for what they care about, from protesting injustice to organizing
rallies. They also ask questions, listen respectfully, and support their classmates.
As both leaders and advocates, they use their voices, hearts, and minds in service
of their ideals. Compared to their peers at other colleges, Mills students are:
- 2x more likely to have demonstrated for a cause*
- 2x more likely to say that influencing political structures is very important to them*
And 71% of Mills seniors say that working for social change is a very important consideration
for their careers.**
There's no one right way to make an impact at Mills. You can fight for Black lives,
lobby legislators to preserve DACA, create events to showcase LGBTQ+ artists, or swim
in a relay race to support cancer research. At Mills, you’ll discover that there are countless ways to build a better world.
