Students walking to class


Miami University participates in the Inter-University Counsel Insurance Consortium (IUC-IC). This consortium was formed to coordinate the purchase of property and liability insurance for many of Ohio 's public universities. Participating in a pooled insurance arrangement allows the institutions to achieve together—through collaboration and cooperation—what institutions may be unable to achieve alone.
