Who We Are
Millersville University of Pennsylvania is a top-ranked, public university located in the northeast region of the U.S. Dedicated to providing nationally recognized programs that embrace the liberal arts, Millersville offers academic opportunities that are supported by outstanding faculty who are accomplished scholars and practitioners. Founded in 1855 as the first Normal School in Pennsylvania, Millersville University is one of 14 universities within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

Millersville offers a world-class education at one-third the cost of the average private education. One reason we are rated one of the top 25 public universities in the North is our placement rate. Within six months of graduation, 95% of Millersville graduates are employed.

Our 250-acre campus is ideally located in a small town tucked away in scenic Lancaster County. The City of Lancaster is only 10 minutes away and seven square miles, but packed with art, museums, historical attractions, restaurants and cafes, theatres, shops and boutiques. Central Market, in downtown Lancaster, attracts thousands of visitors from across the northeast. Surrounding Lancaster City, Lancaster County features farmlands, family-style feasts and the Amish. The big-city bustle of Philadelphia, New York and Washington, D.C. are only a train ride away.

The Millersville University community is large enough to provide dozens of ways to get involved in a rich, diverse campus experience, but small and welcoming enough to find a truly meaningful fit. You will develop relationships with faculty, staff and students that will inspire you to learn new things with a sure foundation of intellectual and emotional support. The Arts at Millersville University, “Lancaster County’s Home for the Cultural Arts,” has two exquisite performing arts centers that feature music, live theater, film, poetry, dance concerts, community events and art exhibits. The Ware Center is located in the heart of Lancaster City and The Winter Center is located on MU’s campus.

Millersville University offers innovative programs taught by leading professors in their fields who produce learning opportunities that are both comprehensive and deep, often beyond the depth available in larger universities or private colleges. Millersville has more than 100 programs of study in five colleges: the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the Lombardo College of Business, the College of Education and Human Services, the College of Science and Technology and the College of Graduate Studies and Adult Learning.

Millersville University’s professors are well-established leaders in their fields of study and 98% hold the highest degrees in their fields. At Millersville University we believe that innovation happens when we learn and work together.

Millersville University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, or disability in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities.
