Graduate Student Resources
The Graduate School is here to provide current graduate students with the resources and support they need to have a positive and successful graduate education experience. We are committed to the academic and professional development of a diverse community of graduate students, faculty, and staff. We aim to ensure the delivery of innovative and effective services and activities throughout the duration of your graduate study.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We view diversity holistically, understanding that the definition is constantly evolving. Our definition of diversity includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, color, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, class, religion, disability, age, military status, visa status, economic status, geographic location, and language/linguistic ability. Diverse and well-reasoned ideas, approaches, and experiences are also essential parts of inclusion and equity.

It is the responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to create an academic community that is free from all forms of prejudice that negatively influence learning, such as those based on age, ethnicity, gender, mental or physical impairment, race, religion, or sexual orientation. All faculty, staff, and students are expected to treat one another with courtesy and respect.
Miami demands the highest standards of professional conduct from its students, faculty, and staff. As a community of scholars, our fundamental purpose is the pursuit of knowledge. Integrity in research and creative activities and in academic study is based on sound disciplinary practices and expectations, as well as a commitment to the values of honesty and integrity.
The Graduate Student Rights and Responsibilities Committee is a standing committee of the Graduate Student Association, composed of 7-9 graduate student members who may not serve concurrently on GSA Exec. The term of membership is one (1) year (renewable for up to 3 years).
