Support and Engage with Western

Continuing the rich tradition of The Western College for Women and the Western College Program, the Individualized Studies Program functions at the forefront of academic innovation and community-building with students of diverse interests and backgrounds. In a time when interdisciplinarity has been adopted University wide, the Individualized Studies Program continues to push the boundaries of traditional academic programs.

The Program remains fully committed to nurturing student-driven majors reflecting the needs and passions of students that are not met by more traditional majors. And, the Individualized Studies Program creates and supports a community of these students and committed professors that celebrate and promote the diversity that the Program attracts.


The Individualized Studies Program also seeks engagement by friends, alumni, parents, and others through various forms of interaction and participation. The Western Alumni Association at Miami University (WAAMU) provides many different ways to support the program and to engage with the larger Western community. To learn more about ways to support the program through engagement, please visit the WAAMU group website
