The Office of Community Engagement and Service (OCES) at Miami University is your information hub for everything from one-time service projects to deep social change and advocacy work. Whether you are a student, faculty or staff member interested in getting involved, we are here to assist you in your effort to create meaningful change. We also serve as the first point of contact for nonprofit organizations seeking to engage with Miami for the purposes of community service, Service-Learning classes, co-sponsorship of events or any other form of collaboration for public benefit.

Our Vision:

Through the equal sharing of power and knowledge via sustained university-community partnerships, Miami students, faculty, and staff will become courageous, empathetic, and effective community-oriented leaders driven to create a more just and equitable world.

Our Mission:

By “passing the mic” to the community, we collaboratively develop mutually-beneficial, transformational learning opportunities which produce measurable outcomes for community members and cultivate civically-engaged student leaders who interrogate their social positions and the structures of power and privilege that affect us all.
