Miami University has a distinctive role among the nation's 3,500 colleges and universities in the way we successfully blend teaching and scholarship. Nationally recognized as one of the most outstanding public undergraduate institutions, Miami gives undergraduates many opportunities to work with senior faculty on research projects and to participate in strong international programs. Miami also has selective graduate programs in areas of special strength. In all we do, we never lose sight of our focus on intellectual development.

This commitment to academic excellence is also demonstrated in our exceptional graduation rate, consistently ranked among those of the top 10 major public universities nationwide. We believe this record of success, which prompted Education Trust to identify Miami as a "model university," remains a reflection of the personal attention our students receive through a comprehensive advising system, a dedicated, accessible faculty, and a wealth of academic resources.
