Hi there,
July has been busy for Global Initiatives as we plan to return to campus and adjust our programs and services to align with Miami's Healthy Together guidelines. We are encouraged by community-wide efforts to make our campus as safe and healthy as possible for faculty, staff, and students. 
Take a sneak peek this month at our #MoveInMiami fundraising plans: donations are being accepted now! Help us spread the word to support our students.
Summer 2021 Faculty-Led programming is starting to open, so visit our website to #FindYourPlace. And as space permits, you can still register for Winter 2020-21!
Remote advising appointments will continue to be available through fall semster for both Education Abroad and International Student and Scholar Services. Staff can be reached by email or phone. For general information, reach out to global@miamioh.edu or call our main line at (513) 529-8600. 
Healthy Together. Plan to return to campus

#MoveInMiami is Back!

#MoveInMiami is Miami University's annual day of giving. When the first-year class moves in, Miamians help welcome them through a gift to any area of Miami they wish to support.
Although the big day is scheduled for August 13 (and is not affected by recent changes to residence hall move-in) you can make a gift right now. This year, we are sponsoring two funds: the International Student Emergency Fund and the Havighurst International Minority Scholarship.
Watch Asim's story to learn how the Havighurst International Minority Scholarship made a difference in his life.

Now more than ever, your generosity makes the difference for our students. Thank you for your continued support of Global Initiatives!

Collaborative Online International Learning

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) projects unite students from all over the world by partnering faculty from international institutions. Two or more faculty work together to develop a course, module, or assignment that transcends borders and provides a common learning experience for students worldwide. 
The Center for Teaching Excellence will be hosting a faculty learning workshop on COIL on August 7 from 10:00-11:30. Sign up here

What is Intergroup Dialogue?

Intergroup Dialogue (IGD) is a model of peer learning that involves semi-structured face-to-face meetings across social identity groups, discussion of relevant reading material, and exploration of group experiences in social and institutional contexts. The goal is to create a setting in which participants engage in open and constructive dialogue and explore issues of intergroup relations, intellectual diversity, free speech, conflict, and community. 
At Miami, students can register for two different sprint courses: IDS 253 Voices of Discovery-Intergroup Dialogue, or IDS 151, Diversity Seminar. Both courses will be offered online this fall, and a few spots remain open for enrollment.
Watch the video below to learn why students say that there is nothing else like it at Miami!
