Extending learning beyond the classroom

Being prepared for life after college means more than simply reading textbooks and passing tests. At the University of Miami, students enhance their classroom learning with a range of involvements and experiences, allowing them to grow and develop into well-rounded citizens of our global society. By providing a transformational student experience, complete with exemplary learning opportunities and a proactive approach to student support, the Division of Student Affairs contributes to student success both while in college and for the rest of their lives.
