Miami Regionals Messaging Guide


How do the Miami regionals fit into the Power of Will story?

The Power of Will is about quiet confidence, optimism, and resolve. It’s about humans, what they can accomplish, and how they can help others. It’s about the people who embody Miami’s values, who work daily to understand more deeply and connect more meaningfully.

Miami Regionals broaden the reach and scope of The Power of Will, providing a wider base of resourceful, determined students with a Miami University degree and the individual support they need to meet and exceed their goals.

The Power of Will is designed to empower and support, never to alienate or intimidate. When we tell someone they will accomplish great things at Miami, we’re saying it’s our purpose to help them accomplish great things. We provide the resources, opportunities, and support vital to meeting a wide range of goals.

Students at Miami Regionals have distinct individual backgrounds, experiences, and goals. We provide access to high-quality applied education, true commitment to our regional communities, and dedication to individual student success. Our students arrive with the will to succeed, and leave with the tools to launch their careers.


When it's time to apply these concepts to real-world communications like emails, blogs, social media posts, etc., keep in mind the things that make the Miami Regionals unique. These will naturally fit with Miami's brand pillars and The Power of Will campaign.
