Miami University is a state-assisted comprehensive university located in southwestern Ohio.

The central campus is in Oxford, a small city located 35 miles north of Cincinnati and 45 miles southwest of Dayton. Regional campuses are located in two nearby cities, Hamilton and Middletown, and a European Center in Luxembourg. The mission of student activities and leadership is to promote intentional involvement, facilitate leadership development and encourage student growth. We deepen the Miami experience through enriching student organizations, offering transformative leadership programs, advising campus programming and challenging and supporting student leaders. We work together with student organization advisors and campus/community partners to advance a student-centered co-curricular experience.
