The mission of Miami University's Office of Diversity Affairs is to support the holistic development of the students we serve. We seek to encourage every member of the campus community to celebrate their personal heritage and to learn about and appreciate the cultures of others. The Office of Diversity Affairs provides enriching and engaging programs, events and activities that effectively embody academic success. We make it a priority to help students recognize, learn, explore, and value the diversity of culture, social background, belief systems, ideas, and thought. 


By advocating for inclusiveness, the Office of Diversity Affairs is responsible for the development and implementation of programs, activities, and intentional learning opportunities to enhance the academic success, personal growth, and professional development of the diverse student population we serve. We embody a commitment to diversity/multiculturalism as expressed through ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic differences.
