General Information

Introduction

The General Bulletin 2008-2010 is the academic guide for new students at Miami University.

Please keep this catalog—it contains the requirements that you must meet for graduation as you enter Miami University in 2008-2010. Miami, however, reserves the right to make changes to its programs. It is your responsibility to check regularly with your academic program adviser for up-to-date information. Consult your academic division's advising office for specific information on academic policies and procedures, degree programs, and requirements.

Mission of Miami University

The mission of Miami University is to preserve, add to, evaluate, and transmit the accumulated knowledge of the centuries; to develop critical thinking, extend the frontiers of knowledge, and serve society; and to provide an environment conducive to effective and inspired teaching and learning, promote professional development of faculty, and encourage scholarly research and creativity of faculty and students.

Miami's primary concern is its students. This concern is reflected in a broad array of efforts to develop the potential of each student. The university endeavors to individualize the educational experience. It provides personal and professional guidance, and it offers opportunities for its students to achieve understanding and appreciation not only of their own culture but of the cultures of others as well. Selected undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs of quality should be offered with the expectation of students achieving high levels of competence and understanding and developing personal value systems. Since the legislation creating Miami University stated that a leading mission of the university was to promote "good education, virtue, religion, and morality," the university has been striving to emphasize the supreme importance of dealing with problems related to values.

Miami is committed to serve the community, state, and nation. It offers access to higher education, including continuing education, for those who can benefit from it, at a reasonable cost, without regard for race, creed, sex, or age. It educates men and women for responsible, informed citizenship, as well as for meaningful employment. It provides both disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the pursuit of knowledge and to the solving of problems. It sponsors a wide range of cultural and educational activities that have significance beyond the campus and the local community.

Miami University Values Statement

Miami University is a scholarly community whose members believe that a liberal education is grounded in qualities of character as well as of intellect. We respect the dignity of other persons, the rights and property of others, and the right of others to hold and express disparate beliefs. We believe in honesty, integrity, and the importance of moral conduct. We defend the freedom of inquiry that is the heart of learning and combine that freedom with the exercise of judgement and the acceptance of personal responsibility.

Brief History

An act of Congress signed by George Washington in 1792 stipulated that a university be located in the Miami Valley north of the Ohio River. The official act to establish Miami University was passed on February 17, 1809. Miami is the tenth oldest public university in the nation and takes its name from the tribe that once inhabited the area known as Ohio's Miami Valley.

Delayed by the War of 1812, instruction began in 1824 with a president, two faculty, and 20 students. Enrollment grew rapidly, reaching 250 by 1839.

In the 1830s, William Holmes McGuffey wrote the first of his Eclectic Readers while a Miami professor. Among the many talented young students was Benjamin Harrison who graduated in 1852; he was elected the 23rd president of the United States in 1888.

A few years after the Civil War, with changed conditions and advancing prices, the income of the university became insufficient to support its work. Miami closed in 1873, opening 12 years later when resources had accumulated and the state of Ohio began a policy of appropriating public funds for support.

Coeducation began in 1888; by 1903 there were more than 100 women on campus—one third of the total enrollment. Our first African American student, Nelly Craig, graduated in 1905.

Many other milestones have been reached. The concept of artist-in-residence began here. Beginning in 1835, four national fraternities were founded here, giving Miami a nickname, "Mother of Fraternities." Another nickname is "Cradle of Coaches," referring to the coaching success of so many former players and coaches. Ohio's first intercollegiate football game was played at Miami in 1888 against the University of Cincinnati.

In the beginning, the course of study at Miami was strictly classical. Over the years new academic divisions were added to meet the changing needs of students and society: education in 1902, business in 1927, fine arts in 1929, graduate programs in 1947, engineering and applied science in 1959, and interdisciplinary studies in 1974.

In 1974, Miami acquired the Western College for Women, a 120-year-old private institution adjoining the Oxford campus.

Miami's Middletown and Hamilton campuses opened in 1966 and 1968, respectively. Also in 1968, Miami opened a European center, now named John E. Dolibois European Campus, in Luxembourg.

A number of campus buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, including Elliott, Stoddard, and Peabody halls, and the Western College for Women Historic District. The McGuffey Museum is a National Historic Landmark.

About Miami

Miami is a public university of Ohio. Approximately 15,200 undergraduates and 1,700 graduate students are enrolled at the Oxford campus. About 225 of the undergraduates attend one or two semesters at the John E. Dolibois European Campus in Differdange, Luxembourg. Two commuter campuses in the nearby cities of Hamilton and Middletown each enroll more than 2,500 additional students.

Opening in January 2009, is Miami's Voice of America Learning Center in nearby West Chester, Ohio. This multipurpose instructional facility will offer graduate and undergraduate courses and programs, as well as customized training opportunities for business, industry, school districts, and government agencies.

Miami offers associate's, bachelor's, master's, Specialist in Education, and doctoral degrees, as well as certificate programs. Degrees, majors, minors, and certificate programs are listed at the end of this chapter.

Location

The central campus of Miami University is located in Oxford, Ohio, just 35 miles north of Cincinnati and 45 miles southwest of Dayton. The university covers more than 1,900 acres in Oxford. Preservation of nature throughout the campus and community coupled with architectural continuity—modified Georgian design—explains why Miami is regarded as one of the most beautiful campuses in the Midwest.

Oxford is a classic college town with a population of about 9,000 (excluding students). Uptown, adjacent to campus, are small shops and local eateries.

Housing

Student Housing and Meal Plan Services
111 Shriver Center, 513-529-5000

All first- and second-year students and first-year transfer students, except those living with their parent(s), guardian(s), or spouse, must live on campus in residence halls (see the Admission chapter).

Residence hall rooms are furnished and more than 85 percent of the rooms are for two students. Most of the remaining rooms accommodate three or four students, but there are a limited number of single rooms.

Housing assignments for freshmen are made at random by computer at Student Housing and Meal Plan Services. Upperclass students who presently live in residence halls may choose to remain in their same rooms for the following academic year or select rooms on-line beginning in September. This early date enables students to make informed housing decisions. For first-year students, the room selection process is conducted from late January through early April to give those students more time to decide where and with whom they would like to live as upperclass students. Students who cannot be placed during the selection process are put on a waiting list. Every attempt is made to honor roommate, room, and hall requests.

Heritage Commons provides apartment-style university housing for upper-class students. The complex is comprised of 108 fully furnished apartments featuring four private bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, and an equipped kitchen. Exclusive parking is available for Heritage Commons residents.

Contract and Deposit

All students living in a residence hall sign a housing contract, an agreement to pay room rent and board, and pay a $350 housing deposit.

Dining Facilities

Thirty-five residence halls are served by five "all you care to eat" buffets, as well as several à la carte, food service locations managed by the university.
