A weekly series designed to highlight events, benefits, perks, and items of interest for University of Miami faculty and staff.

Let’s celebrate our class of 2021 employee-graduates.
Share your story.
Commencement ceremonies—being held on Friday, Dec. 17, at the Watsco Center—will recognize hundreds of University of Miami students for achieving a major milestone in their academic career. In particular, we want to laud University employees who are part of the class of 2021. If you are among them, tell us about your experience as an employee-student and the journey that led to this great accomplishment. Send an email to lifeattheU@miami.edu and share your story.
