#MoveInMiami projects support research and education

in during #MoveInMiami 2016 
#MoveInMiami is a day of fundraising honoring the freshman class moving into their new homes on Miami’s Oxford campus. As the Class of 2021 infuses Miami with new energy and ideas, #MoveInMiami raises money for dozens of projects.

The spirit of the campaign is this: everyone who wants to support Miami (but perhaps cannot do a large gift) can donate any amount to a specific cause that is meaningful to them. The campaign runs 6am on Thursday, August 24th and 2:21am on Friday, August 25th. It lasts for 20 hours and 21 minutes to celebrate the class of 2021.

Four projects the CEC community in particular might be interested in promoting are:

  • The Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute, which aims to cultivate leaders who will flourish in their professions and lives by teaching them to think strategically, work collaboratively with others, effectively communicating their ideas, and find innovative solutions to society's most complex problems (GiveToMiamiOH.org/LockheedMartin)
  • The Miami University Center for Assistive Technologies, a cross-disciplinary scholarly research center to enable engineering solutions for socially relevant problems for improving quality of life by assisting the lives of older adults and people with disabilities
  • The Paper Science & Engineering Foundation, which supports the Chemical, Paper and Biomedical Engineering Department at Miami University by providing scholarships and work experience opportunities to students studying for careers of leadership in the pulp and paper industry
  • Socially Engaged Engineering & Computing, which aims to create engineers and computer scientists prepared to address both the technical and social dimensions of engineering work, and further SEEC's goals in the areas of curriculum, co-curriculum, and research
