MUAA Board

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is comprised of 20 volunteers who represent Miami alumni worldwide. An advisory board, they provide support with programs, planning and focusing the efforts of the Alumni Association.

Service involves three/four meetings in Oxford during each of the four years as a Director. The business of the Board is to advise the Association on its alumni programming initiatives and to help promote those initiatives across the country.

Ambassador Pin

The pin to recognize former Directors of the Miami University Alumni Association borrows from Miami University’s Native American roots.

  • The medicine wheel design is an important ceremonial and cultural symbol for many Native Americans, including the Miami Tribe.
  • The wheel is a symbolic representation of the cycle of life.
  • The four directional arrows represent the four Spirit Keepers and their animal totems:
    • Buffalo in the North, whose color is that of the snow for his are the qualities of renewal and purification:
    • Eagle to the East, whose clear vision brings awakening, illumination, and wisdom and thus wears golden feathers of dawn:
    • Coyote in the South, with his ability to teach and survive, will bring growth and being and his are the colors of the fertile earth:
    • and finally Bear, whose strength and foresight place him as chief of the Animal Council, and whose color is the blue of twilight as it merges with the black of night, for blue is the color of spiritual strength and black is the color of one looking into the formlessness from which all things come.
  • The colors also represent the four elements of the world and the universe: fire, earth, water, and air. Into the center of the wheel, we have placed the red “M” which is symbolic of Miami University. It is Miami University which is the central focus of the Alumni Association Board of Directors.
  • The colors of Miami University, red and white, are prominent in the pin’s design.

The pin identifies former Directors of the Alumni Association as they participate in the activities of the Association and the University. It is symbolic of extraordinary volunteer service. The design of the pin and the language of its description were approved by Chief Floyd E. Leonard of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, March 1993. The description of the wheels is from The Medicine Wheel by Sun Bear.
