Mills College at Northeastern is a community of teachers, scholars, researchers, leaders, and changemakers rooted in the diverse Bay Area. Through our teaching and scholarship, we promote social and community accountability, diversity, equity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability. We prepare students to make an impact in the world by building on Oakland’s roots in activism and leveraging our strengths in social justice, equity, meaningful partnerships, and academic excellence. We are committed to furthering the university's mission of diverse and inclusive experiential learning and research on our beautiful campus, the surrounding community, and beyond. The historic architecture and intimate facilities of our Oakland campus serve as incubators for scholars in a wide variety of disciplines. We strive to foster learning and well-being by building a curriculum, praxis, and research focus that are thoughtful, intentional, and of the highest quality. Our graduate and undergraduate programs will engage students in transformative, important conversations and provide a range of opportunities for personal and professional growth. This foundation prepares students to lead meaningful change in their chosen fields.
