With over 600 student organizations at Miami University, there are so many opportunities to get involved during your college experience. By joining an organization, students can become active members and make a difference on campus, as well as in surrounding communities. Getting involved offers a broader educational experience by providing leadership opportunities and engaging programs and events to students throughout the academic year.

Affiliated and Departmental Organizations

Affiliated organizations are organizations that are affiliated with various departments and divisions at Miami. These organizations serve as extensions of their sponsoring departments and divisions. They are typically advised and supported by the department or division and help promote the mission of the program. An example would be the SEAL Ambassadors, an organization affiliated with our office. SEAL Ambassadors help students get involved on campus and promote strategic involvement.

Several departments across campus also work with a large number of organizations that, while they are not affiliated, are in some way related to that department or division. An example of this would be that while the Society of Women Engineers helps student engineers in a number of ways, they are not directly affiliated with the College of Engineering and Computing.
