What Constitutes Diversity?
We view diversity holistically, understanding that the definition is constantly evolving. Our definition of diversity includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, color, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, class, religion, disability, age, military status, visa status, economic status, geographic location, and language/linguistic ability. Diverse and well-reasoned ideas, approaches, and experiences are also essential parts of inclusion and equity.
What Are Our Guiding Principles and Values?
Miami University is committed to and fully embraces the philosophy and belief that a diverse academic community is among an institution’s greatest strengths. As decades of research and experience have shown, every unit and individual on campus benefits from diversity when there is an environment where people from a wide variety of backgrounds learn from one another, share ideas, and work collaboratively to ask and solve questions. This is especially important given Miami’s commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching and learning. A diverse and inclusive campus enhances the living, learning, and working environment for every student, staff, and faculty member. Together, these benefits help Miami achieve its special mission as a public institution in Ohio, educating students across the state and preparing them to be leaders in a variety of fields who are ready for the demands of the 21st century workforce. We therefore aspire to attract and retain a broadly diverse group of faculty, staff and students.
Students of Color
Our commitment encourages us to attract and retain significant numbers of students, faculty, and staff from historically underrepresented groups as well as members of other groups that have faced significant barriers to higher education. Miami offers a wide variety of opportunities for students and faculty to explore diversity and inclusion in the context of courses, programs, and experiences across the academic units and in the social dimensions of the campus environment. Achieving inclusive excellence also requires the development of a psychological and behavioral culture that is supportive of all students, faculty, and staff.
The College of Education, Health and Society offers a wide variety of graduate courses, workshops and masters programs to K-12 professionals. Whether you are interested in updating your skills, adding a new license, adding an endorsement to a current license, or earning a graduate degree, we have something for you.
Our programs are offered in a variety of formats and locations, including both fully online and hybrid (a combination of face-to-face and online). Many courses and workshops are available at Miami’s Voice of America Learning Center, conveniently located off I-75 in West Chester, providing easy access to educators in Southwest Ohio.
The MAT is typically a two-and-a-half year program, depending on the content courses you have already completed, when you start the program, and whether or not you take summer courses. Licensure programs in early and middle childhood are only available at the undergraduate level. If you have a degree and want licensure in early or middle childhood, you must apply as an undergraduate student and take all undergraduate courses.
With a focus on Leadership, Culture and Curriculum, this program features a set of core classes and a self-designed concentration reflecting your interests and career focus. Core classes provide a foundation in the disciplines of educational leadership, administration, curriculum theory, and cultural foundations.
