Mission

Aligned with Miami University’s commitment to advance global learning, Global Initiatives promotes the dynamic, comprehensive internationalization of the University through the infusion of multicultural and comparative perspectives in scholarship, teaching, and service. Support focuses on user- and constituent-friendly services with a commitment to efficiency, and acts as the connective tissue for all internationalization realms.
