About the System - Our Partners

Howe Writing Center

In October, Miami will proudly open the Roger and Joyce Howe Student Center for Writing Excellence. The Centers mission will be to help all Miami students, even the most accomplished, enhance their writing ability and learn more through writing. Made possible by a magnificent gift of $10.5 million from Roger and Joyce Howe, the center is now situated in the middle of the main floor of King Library.

The ORU will encourage new students and current students to embrace a desire to engage in research. We are proud to champion the vision, marketing, and coordination of research by undergraduates at Miami with research-active faculty and staff. ORU will focus on sustaining current levels of participation in research and creative efforts, increasing the overall quality of undergraduate research at Miami as evidenced through publications, grants, and fellowships and broadening participation to students and faculty in all disciplines.
