The mission of the Scholar Leader Community at Miami University is to establish a proactive, supportive community dedicated to enhancing leadership and scholarship among its members and the broader university community.

Scholar Leader is an upper-class residential living-learning community involving a one-year residence in Elliott or Stoddard Halls - two of the most historic residence halls in the nation. Endowments for each room provide partial scholarship to those students selected to live in the community. Each year, approximately 75 students are invited to join the Scholar Leader Community after a multi-stage application and selection process. The Scholar Leader Community encourages resident-guided programming, academic involvement, service learning projects, and the opportunity to explore leadership through intensive group engagement. The Scholar Leader Community is advised by staff in Miami's Wilks Leadership Institute and Office of Residence Life.
