Miami’s Humanities Center currently offers numerous programs for cross-disciplinary collaboration, undergraduate research and public inquiry. The center recently received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) award that will fund three new programs: a Humanities Teaching Lab, a Faculty Research Collective and a Research Apprenticeship Program in which students will work closely with faculty on high-level research projects. Interested student are encouraged to contact the center to get involved.

Miami’s Roger & Joyce Howe Center for Writing Excellence assures that Miami fully prepares all of its graduates to excel in the writing they will do after college.

Miami’s Statistical Consulting Center (SCC) offers statistical consulting to faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students conducting research at Miami University. The SCC is a group of statisticians who provide consultation on all aspects of data collection, analysis and interpretation.

Miami University's Study Abroad Office is committed to assisting Miami University students to identify and plan for a research experience abroad. Contact studyabroad@miamioh.edu, 513-529-8600 or visit the office to chat about program affordability and credit transfer. Ask about a Co-sponsored program such as EuroScholars for which students can use their Miami scholarships toward the cost of tuition of the program and students can apply for additional Miami study abroad scholarships to support their participation.

Western Inquiry Center housed in historic Peabody Hall, the center fosters intellectual exploration through inquiry within and outside the classroom. Students trained as Inquiry Mentors assist their peers in understanding the inquiry process to support independent studies and self-directed projects.
