COVID Response



Milligan Serves – COVID-19 Response

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted our campus in many ways. Our faculty and students are finishing the semester through online learning. Our employees are working from home. Our events have been cancelled. Life is very different. But what is not different is our mission that as a Christian liberal arts university, we seek to honor God by educating men and women to be servant-leaders. This page summarizes some of the ways that Milligan is helping the response to COVID-19 through acts of servant-leadership.
