Miami University, like other public entities, including the state of Ohio, is experiencing significant impacts on its budget due to the overall economic downturn.
As the university prepares to take more steps to reduce costs and maintain a balanced budget, it is important that all members of the community be able to see the factors that guide university decision-making. Below you will find reports from the state and from Miami that supply current financial statistics as well as key communications.
More information will be posted on this site as it becomes available. If you have questions about this material, or suggestions for additions to the site, please contact Claire Wagner, associate director of University Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also submit your ideas for saving costs and improving processes in Miami's operations.
