Courtney Rose

Bradford, Ohio | Integrated English Language Arts Education Major

Courtney has been heavily involved since the moment they stepped on campus four years ago. Their nominator described Courtney as a fierce advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion from every possible vantage point on this campus.

They have served as the director for advocacy in the Residence Hall Association, president of the Diversity Affairs Council, a member of the University’s Council for Diversity and Inclusion, and, most recently, as Secretary for Diversity and Inclusion in the Associated Student Government. Through all of these experiences, Courtney has focused on creating a more inclusive and culturally competent campus community for all Miamians. One way they take on this task is by building bridges between various populations on campus.

Courtney was recently recognized for their dedication and advocacy when they received Miami’s first Inclusive Excellence Award, given by the Office of the President, Office of Institutional Diversity, and Intercollegiate Athletics.
