About University of Miami

The University of Miami is considered among the top tier institutions of higher education in the US for its academic excellence, superior medical care, and cutting-edge research. At the U, we are committed to attracting a talented workforce to support our common purpose of transforming lives through teaching, research, and service.

Through our values of Diversity, Integrity, Responsibility, Excellence, Compassion, Creativity and Teamwork (DIRECCT) we strive to celebrate an environment where everyone contributes in making UM a great place to work. We are one of the largest private employers in Miami-Dade County; home to more than 13,400 faculty and staff from all over the world. Through a competitive total rewards package and opportunities for growth, we are an organization that does not only accept differences, we value them.

A private research university with more than 16,000 students from around the world, the University of Miami is a vibrant and diverse academic community focused on teaching and learning, the discovery of new knowledge, and service to the South Florida region and beyond.

The University comprises 11 schools and colleges serving undergraduate and graduate students in more than 180 majors and programs. In 2015, U.S. News & World Report ranked UM among the top 51 universities in the country in its “Best Colleges” listings. U.S. News also cites several of its programs in “America's Best Graduate Schools.”

Established in 1925 during the region's famous real estate boom, UM is a major research university engaged in more than $330 million in research and sponsored program expenditures annually. While the majority of this work is housed at the Miller School of Medicine, investigators conduct hundreds of studies in other areas, including marine science, engineering, education, and psychology.




Commitment to Equal Opportunity: 

In today’s workplace, where change is the only constant and a growing number of cultures have become an ever-increasing influence, business leaders must be able to harness the wealth of such human diversity. The University of Miami is no exception. Workers from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, along with the fierce competition that academic and medical institutions now face, make cultural diversity a critical issue and an undeniable resource. The road ahead is challenging and exciting as we come to understand the vast array of values and backgrounds in our workforce and maximize its potential.

The University of Miami is committed to blending our cultures into a harmonious family atmosphere and accepting each as a vital link in our mission. The University is committed to strengthening the intellectual, cultural and economic life of the communities of South Florida and the world by fostering respect for the differences among people, the nurturing of curiosity, the insistence upon high standards of thought, study, communication and the skills that should characterize the educated person.

Workplace Equity and Performance is responsible for implementing diversity initiatives to increase diversity awareness throughout the University of Miami community. Our diversity pages are primarily intended as a resource for faculty, staff and students of the University. While it is not meant to provide an exhaustive listing of all possible sources or groups of the University campus, in the local community, or on the Internet, we hope it can serve as a starting point for exploring cultural diversity.
