Aspirations Aspirations

As the University of Miami looks toward its centennial in 2025, it is guided by four aspirations.

Our location in Miami gives us a distinct geographic capacity to connect institutions, individuals, and ideas across the Americas and throughout the world.

A drive for excellence permeates every domain of our work—from research to public service, from teaching to athletics, from health care to the arts.

From its very origins, the University has served the local and global communities to which it belongs.


Integrity, respect, diversity, tolerance, and resilience are qualities at the heart of the University.
