Featured Guest

Daryl Baldwin

Daryl Baldwin, director of the Myaamia Center at Miami University and a leader in Native American language and cultural revitalization, will be the commencement speaker at Miami’s ceremony 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13, at Yager Stadium.

Baldwin, who also is an adjunct assistant professor in educational leadership, in September was awarded a “genius grant” as one of the 2016 MacArthur Fellows. He was among 23 people selected from a variety of fields by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

Selections were made based primarily on “exceptional creativity, as demonstrated through a track record of significant achievement, and manifest promise for important future advances,” the foundation said.

Baldwin, a linguist and cultural preservationist, is leading a revival of the cultural heritage and language of the Miami (Myaamia) Nation, of which he is a citizen.
