Miami University-Oxford

Miami University-Oxford

Nationally recognized as one of the country's most outstanding undergraduate institutions, Miami University is a public university located in Oxford, Ohio (35 miles north of Cincinnati), with regional locations in Hamilton, Middletown, and West Chester, Ohio, and the John E. Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg. Miami combines a wide range of strong academic programs with the personal attention ordinarily found only at much smaller institutions. A liberal education core complements the more specialized studies of the majors.

Along with an impressive number of opportunities to gain practical, hands-on and immersive experiences, Miami is distinguished by a faculty who enjoy teaching and mentoring students. Recognized as a "Public Ivy" by Richard Moll in his 1985 book about America's flagship universities, Miami is consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation’s best schools for “unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.” This commitment to teaching is demonstrated in the University's record of exceptional retention and graduation rates-which are among highest for NCAA Division I schools. Miami also regularly ranks among the top public doctoral university in the country for study abroad participation by undergraduate students.

Chartered in 1809, Miami is the 10th oldest public university in the nation. Enrollment includes almost 15,000 undergraduates and more than 2,200 graduate students on the Oxford campus, which is lauded for its exceptional beauty. The charming, historic uptown area of Oxford is adjacent to the campus.

Miami offers bachelor degrees in over 100 areas of study and master's degrees in more than 50 areas; the University also offers a number of doctoral degrees.

The Office of Equity and Equal Opportunity (OEEO) exists to provide an inclusive, equitable, working, living, and learning environment to members of the Miami University community. OEEO provides members of the university community a place to obtain guidance for providing equal opportunity in personnel matters, and to resolve issues of harassment and discrimination

The Office of Equity and Equal Opportunity (OEEO) ensures that Miami University provides an equitable environment for students, faculty, and staff. This will be achieved with compassion, understanding, and fairness to all parties involved and act as a resource for all members of the university community.

For a list of contacts involved in diversity-related efforts, see Diversity Contacts (PDF 229KB).

As part of institutional diversity and inclusion goals, our efforts diligently center on four core areas: recruitment, retention, curriculum and climate. These core areas are addressed through key initiatives that are tailored to faculty, staff, and students and are executed either through programs and support from our office or in collaboration with other university offices, departments, and programs. In addition, we also value relationships with our community partners who also work with us to promote diversity and inclusion at Miami.

As part of our commitment to a Liberal Education, the Global Miami Plan promotes coursework designed to provide students with a breadth of information on a range of content areas. The curriculum also provides courses related to diversity and inclusion both within the United States and abroad.

We have found one core area to be especially important because of its effect on all the other areas mentioned—climate. In an effort to assess our strengths and room for growth in this area, we have engaged in periodic climate surveys to inform best practices and next steps.

We invite you to join us in addressing these important areas as we continue to strive to make Miami a diverse and inclusive campus!

Enrollment

As part of our recruitment efforts, we partner closely with the Office of Admission to facilitate a diverse undergraduate student population. As such, we invite you to view the current information on our enrollment.

Retention

We truly believe that once our students arrive on campus, our efforts to ensure that they have an enriching academic experience—complete with curricular and co-curricular opportunities—will contribute to their overall student success. This student success contributes to both their year-to-year retention and later, to their graduation. At Miami, we are proud of our recognition in this area and encourage you to review our current student retention rates.

Faculty

Our office also works to address issues of faculty recruitment and retention. We invite you to view the current diversity statistics for faculty.

Office of Diversity Affairs (ODA)
Located within the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Diversity Affairs offers direct support to diverse student populations through multicultural programming that centers on academic, professional, and social development.

Diversity Affairs Council (DAC)
The Diversity Affairs Council, one of nine councils under the Associated Student Government (ASG), helps promote cultural and intellectual diversity on campus through programming efforts and activities of student groups and administrative offices.

Center for American & World Cultures (CAWC)
Implementing programs and activities that celebrate the richness of diversity, the CAWC works to create a richer educational experience for students and to foster the value of continuous learning about cultures and diverse ideas.

Confucius Institute
Serving as a platform to internationalize current and future Miami students, the Confucius Institute uses such efforts as their host outreach program to expand the Chinese language and Miami's cultural offerings.

Women's Center
Offering programs and resources that enhance the lives of women at Miami, the Women's Center works to educate the campus about equity and climate issues and the contributions of women and advocates for women's full access to and participation in the institution.

Office of Equity and Equal Opportunity (OEEO)
This office provides an equitable environment for students, faculty, and staff and works to achieve this with compassion, understanding, and fairness to all parties involved. The OEEO staff works closely with faculty and staff on matters related to equitable hiring practices, ADA compliance for persons with disabilities, and issues of discrimination as well as providing information and training.

Faculty and Staff Organizations

Asian and Asian-American Faculty & Staff Association (AAA-FSA)

Established in 2007, the AAA-FSA consists of employees of Miami University at the Hamilton, Middletown, and Oxford campuses. Its mission includes the following actions:

  • Advocate for Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander faculty and staff at Miami. We will support and defend the rights and privileges accorded to faculty and staff. We will make efforts to increase opportunities for current faculty and staff in order to raise our profile on campus. We will function as a liaison to the university regarding matters of concern to our community.
  • Promote the intellectual and personal development of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander students at Miami. We will work with students for the purpose of guiding their academic and cultural interests.
  • Collaborate with other Miami organizations and the community at large to foster a greater understanding of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander issues and concerns. We will build networks and foster partnerships among academic affairs, student affairs, and community organizations to advance diversity, equity, and social justice.
  • Celebrate the cultures and contributions of Asian, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders in the United States and in the Diaspora. We will support university and community activities that fall within the scope of our organization's mission.

Association of Black Faculty & Staff (ABFAS)

As one of the oldest university Black Faculty & Staff associations in the country, the ABGAS has worked for over 40 years to attract and retain diverse faculty and staff at Miami. In addition, the ABFAS strives to create a curriculum representing the Black Diaspora in which we live and a climate that is welcoming to peoples of African descent. The Association works to implement three primary functions:

  • Assist the university in increasing the faculty, staff, and student composition to secure a "critical mass" of diverse peoples
  • Provide a crucial voice calling into question any inequitable practices or policy at Miami University
  • Offer support to faculty, staff, and students

Association of Latino/a Faculty & Staff (ALFAS)

The ALFAS has been formed by Miami University employees (Hamilton, Middletown, and Oxford campuses) to foster Latino/a (defined as Luso-Hipanics) representation, improve work conditions, and enrich the social and cultural environment for all faculty, staff, and students. Toward that end, the Association has adopted the following goals:

  • Aid in the recruitment, retention, and promotion efforts of other qualified Latino/a faculty and staff

  • Educate others about the Latino/a culture
  • Serve as role models and mentors for all Latino/a students at Miami University
  • Aid in the recruitment and retention of qualified International Latino/a students

LGBTQ Advisory Group

The LGBTQ Advisory Group has the role of bringing together several separate constituencies (undergrad/SPECTRUM, grad/HAVEN, faculty and staff/GLEAM) as well as representatives from the regional campuses in order to educate the university community about LGBTQ concerns and to address injustices perpetrated against LGBTQ community members in policy or practice. Originally constituted in 2003 as the LGBTQ concerns committee, the group focuses on issues of gender identity and sexual orientation, and works on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community at Miami. The organization's goal is to educate the Miami university community about LGBTQ concerns and address injustices perpetrated against LGBTQ community members in policy and practice.

Past accomplishments include domestic partnership benefits and the creation of a Gender and Sexuality Studies thematic sequence. The group continues to provide opportunities for socializing (including the GLBT Gala in February) and political engagement. Everyone, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity, is welcome to join.
