The assessment informs Miami's efforts in four core areas: recruitment, retention, curriculum and climate. As part of our recruitment efforts, we partner closely with the Office of Admission to facilitate a diverse undergraduate student population. In terms of retention, we work to ensure students have an enriching academic experience—complete with curricular and co-curricular opportunities. As part of our commitment to a Liberal Education, the Global Miami Plan promotes coursework designed to provide students with a breadth of information on a range of content areas. The curriculum also provides courses related to diversity and inclusion both within the United States and abroad.
