Ronald B. Scott
Associate V.P. for Institutional Diversity

Institutional Diversity

Working out of the Office of the President, the Associate Vice President for Institutional Diversity is charged with supporting Miami University's Values Statement and Mission Statement and ensuring that each and every member of the Miami community has an opportunity to be involved and included in every aspect of the campus experience.

Miami's commitment to inclusion and inclusive experience is reflected in our values, mission, and organizational structure, as well as our formal and informal curriculum. Our goal is to develop deep levels of understanding of culture and difference by continuously working to foster a campus culture that supports learning, development, and engagement across and between all members of the community.

Miami's commitment to inclusive excellence encourages us to attract and retain significant numbers of students, faculty, and staff from historically underrepresented groups as well as members of other groups that have faced significant barriers to higher education. Miami offers a wide variety of opportunities for students and faculty to explore diversity and inclusion in the context of courses, programs, and experiences across the academic units and in the social dimensions of the campus environment. Achieving inclusive excellence also requires the development of a psychological and behavioral culture that is supportive of all students, faculty, staff.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to share any ideas that they may have about expanding and promoting inclusion and encourage every member of the community to savor the richness of difference on campus and fully participate in the many events that will be held through out the academic year.

Welcome to Miami University!

Dr. Ronald B. Scott
