The Center for Career Exploration and Success (CCES) affirms the guiding principles and values as outlined in the Diversity and Inclusion Statement for Miami University. CCES is committed to identifying career pathways for students that speak to the uniqueness and the intersectionality of identities within a global society. Through strategic initiatives for diversity, inclusion and equity we strive to foster networks with students, faculty, staff, families, employers and alumni to engage the MU Career Community in Inclusive Excellence.
