About Student Affairs

Student Affairs at Miami University serves university community - students, parents, faculty, staff, and visitors - through our 16 departments. We support and engage students in all aspects of their life outside of the classroom.

Our core purpose is to prepare students for a life of engaged and ethical citizenship and leadership through experiential student development and learning.

Student Affairs is committed to Inclusion, Collaboration, Excellence, and Transformational Learning.

  • Inclusion: Through advocacy and education we build communities that honor diversity, access, and respect.
  • Collaboration: Through collaborative relationship with others, we create enriching learning environments for all.
  • Excellence: Through innovation and continuous improvement we demonstrate the achievement of excellence in our work.
  • Transformational Learning: Through creating challenging and supportive learning environments, we foster development and growth in ourselves as professionals and in the students we serve.
