Be at the Center of Mills.

Our Center for Leadership, Equity & Excellence is at the heart of student life at Mills. Through a series of events, programs, activities, and resources (and an amazing group of staff), the center will help you get connected, supported, engaged, and inspired at Mills.

Student Activities & Orientation

Before you even begin your college experience we’ll be organizing a robust New Student Orientation program to welcome you to Mills. Once you’re here, staff and student assistants will help you get involved in campus life through student clubs and organizations and a calendar of eclectic events that will reflect the diversity of our students and their interests.

Leadership Development Series

To empower you to become a thoughtful, collaborative leader who embodies the values of equity and inclusion, we offer a leadership development series of workshops and lectures. You’ll enhance your self awareness and gain leadership skills through topics such as conflict management, strategic planning, and engaging community.

Social Justice Resources

As part of our ongoing efforts to engage the campus and surrounding community in the fight for equity and justice, we offer educational resources, leadership opportunities, and a variety of spaces and formats for learning about social justice and taking action for personal and social change.
