The Miami University Alumni Association believes that a Miamian is any student, alumni, faculty member, staff member, administrator or friend of the University who is interested in bettering our University.
Miami University’s strength is its people: alumni, faculty and students as well as the many friends of the University. The Miami family is bonded together by a common pride and respect for the tradition of excellence that is the hallmark of the Miami University experience.
The Alumni Association is committed to preserving Miami’s heritage and cultivating the relationships that connect us all to Miami University for a lifetime. Joining the Miami University Alumni Association is an opportunity for all Miamians to honor their Miami Memories, enjoy a host of exclusive benefits and to engage in activities that advance the University.
