Research and Community Engagement
Bringing research to practice. Acclaimed EHS faculty are constantly exploring and pushing the boundaries in their fields.
EHS faculty encourage students, both undergraduate and graduate, to join them in a wide variety of research projects that incorporate community engagement, social activism, service-based leadership, interdisciplinary scholarship, and more. We take pride in offering a host of integrated research-based opportunities that are rarely afforded at many other institutions. Our goal is to think through the serious challenges facing our rapidly changing global society and to find innovative solutions that will lead to a more just and holistic human experience.

Faculty Areas of Focus
Although faculty members share individual expertise across the Division’s fields of study, there are core areas of focus shared by a number of faculty members where their teaching, research, and engagement are furthering the EHS mission to strengthen society in areas such as:
- Advancing equity and justice in schools and communities
- Preventing obesity and eradicating food deserts
- Promoting awareness and advocacy for people with disabilities
- Making sports more inclusive and accessible, including leading the development of e-sports and sport analytics
- Supporting mental health awareness, education, and training among Ohio K-12 students and staff
- Informing archival, capacity-building methods to support revitalization, preservation, and access to Indigenous languages
Students and faculty within EHS continuously engage with critical issues facing children, schools, health, and society. Unlike many universities that reserve these opportunities for graduate students, Miami welcomes undergraduate student participation in meaningful research and promotes a supportive, forward-thinking, and innovation-oriented culture.
