Leadership. Compassion. Drive.


Shaping tomorrow’s leaders

The mission of the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is rooted in the belief that true athletic achievement always includes academic success and a commitment to service. We are dedicated to developing and supporting our student-athletes in their efforts to achieve personal, academic, and athletic excellence, resulting in the highest standards of achievement. With the support of our friends and alumni, we will continue cultivating tomorrow’s boldest and most dedicated champions.

Brighter champions

Bridging the divide

In an increasingly changing and challenging world, we see great opportunities for our brighter champions to participate in the global pursuit of progress and positive change through the values and lessons learned through college athletics.

Building champions for positive change

Our focus is to provide the University of Miami athletics department with the resources it needs to further strengthen the academic performance, sportsmanship, commitment to service, and personal development of our student-athletes while supporting our coaches and leaders to the highest levels. By reinforcing our connections with alumni, donors, and the University community, we also aim to celebrate the sense of pride in belonging to our ’Canes family worldwide. 

No matter the external challenges, we will continue to build champions—in the classroom, in competition, and in life.
