Purple Heart

What does Miami University’s regional campuses in Hamilton and Middletown being designated a “Purple Heart University” mean to you?
  • It means that several faculty and staff members in every academic department, as well as staff members in Admission, Financial Aid, Records & Registration, and the brand new One-Stop Centers for Student Success on each campus, have completed the Military-Friendly Training that includes a pledge to be active-military members, veteran, and veteran-family friendly.

  • It means trained faculty and staff have a thorough understanding of military terminology, the military mindset, academic and financial issues specific to veterans, benefits available to veterans, transfer of military training to college credit, and military training that aligns with specific academic programs.

  • It means that Miami Hamilton and Miami Middletown already has built a welcoming community—a combined 130 veterans are currently enrolled—for veterans and their family members.
