The Tiffin Society recognizes philanthropic leaders for their support and ambassadorship to TU. At annual levels, each member’s cumulative giving will provide our University with the necessary resources to enhance the success of our students.

At TU, we believe that without risk, there is no gain. We offer a distinctive approach to learning in the 21st century through faculty with real-world experience. Our intentionality to celebrate cultural uniqueness prepares our graduates to be innovative problem-solvers who can leverage diversity. We are in the business of cultivating thousands of young minds into a more effective workforce for tomorrow and we need your help.

The Tiffin Society recognizes philanthropic leaders for their support and ambassadorship to TU. At levels ranging from $1,000 to over $100,000, each member’s cumulative giving each year will provide TU with the necessary resources to enhance student success. We are also pleased to recognize members into the Tiffin Society, whose lifetime giving exceeds $100,000.

Tiffin Society members will receive the benefit of invitations to exclusive events, direct communication from University leadership, special recognition and unique gifts of appreciation. Most importantly, members will experience a new partnership with the University that has a lasting impact on the lives of students at Tiffin University.

Co-Chairs of the Tiffin Society

Dr. John Millar, Emeritus Dean and one of Tiffin University’s longest-serving employees, is a well-known name on campus. John served as the Dean of Enrollment Services, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Vice President for Academic Affairs (twice) and Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of the School of Business (twice). Although retired, John and Joyce’s contributions to TU still remain. As their final way to further their legacy and give back, John and Joyce named TU as a beneficiary in their estate plan to further fund the John & Joyce Millar Scholarship. TU is excited that John and Joyce have agreed to co-chair the Tiffin Society.
