The University of Miami offers 138 undergraduate, 140 master's, and 67 doctoral degree programs.[3] Since its founding in 1925, the university has attracted students from all 50 states and nearly 150 foreign countries.[11] With 16,479 faculty and staff as of 2021, the University of Miami is the second largest employer in Miami-Dade County.[12] The university's main campus in Coral Gables spans 240 acres (0.97 km2), has over 5,700,000 square feet (530,000 m2) of buildings, and is located 7 miles (11 km) south of downtown Miami, the core of the Miami metropolitan area, the nation's ninth largest and world's 34th largest metropolitan area with a population of 6.158 million people.

University of Miami faculty include a sizable number of notable academics across nearly all disciplines, including four Nobel Prize winners. The university is classified among "Doctoral Universities: Very High Research Activity".[13] The University of Miami's research expenditures in 2021 were $375 million, making it the 71st largest research university in the nation.[3] Its undergraduate academic admissions standards are ranked the highest among Florida's 171 universities and colleges,[14] and the university's library system ranks among the top 50 research libraries in North America with over four million volumes, including exceptional holdings in Cuban heritage and music.[15][16]

The University of Miami's intercollegiate athletic teams are collectively known as the Miami Hurricanes and compete in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.[17] The University of Miami's football team has won five national championships since 1983[18] and its baseball team has won four national championships since 1982.

LeadershipEdit

Bowman Foster Ashe (1926 to 1952)Edit

In 1925, the University of Miami was chartered by a group of citizens who sought to offer "unique opportunities to develop inter-American studies, further creative work in the arts and letters, and conduct teaching and research programs in tropical studies".[21] They believed that a local university would benefit the Miami metropolitan area and were optimistic that the university would be a beneficiary of future financial support, largely because South Florida was experiencing its now historic land boom of the 1920s.[21] During this era of Jim Crow laws, there were three large state-funded universities in Florida for white males, white females, and black coeds (the University of Florida in Gainesville and Florida State University and Florida A&M University, both in Tallahassee). Like most private universities of the time, the University of Miami was founded as a coeducational institution but not yet open to Black students.

The university began in earnest in 1925 when George E. Merrick, the founder of Coral Gables, granted 160 acres (0.6 km2) and nearly $5 million[22] ($77.3 million, adjusted for current inflation) for the university's founding.[23] These contributions were land contracts and mortgages on real estate that had been sold in the city.[24] The university was chartered on April 8, 1925[25] by the Circuit Court for Dade County.[26] But by the fall of 1926, when the first class of 372 students enrolled at the new university,[27] the land boom had collapsed and hopes for a speedy recovery were dashed further by a major hurricane.[28] For the next 15 years, the university struggled to remain solvent. The first building on campus, now known as the Merrick Building, was left half built for over two decades due to economic difficulties.[28] In the meantime, classes were held at the nearby Anastasia Hotel in Coral Gables, with partitions separating classrooms, giving the university the early nickname of "Cardboard College."[28][29][30]

In 1929, the University of Miami's founding member William E. Walsh and other members of the university's board of regents resigned in the wake of the collapse of the Florida economy. The University of Miami's plight was so severe that students went door to door in Coral Gables collecting funds to keep it open.[29] A reconstituted ten-member board was chaired by the university's first president Bowman Foster Ashe (1926–1952) and included Merrick, Theodore Dickinson, E.B. Douglas, David Fairchild, James H. Gilman, Richardson Saunders, Frank B. Shutts, Joseph H. Adams, and J. C. Penney. In 1930, several faculty members and more than 60 students entered the University of Miami when the University of Havana closed due to political unrest in Cuba.[28] But none of it proved enough, and the university filed for bankruptcy in 1932.[28][31]

The University of Miami survived the early turmoil, however. In July 1934, the University of Miami was reincorporated and a board of trustees replaced the board of regents. By 1940, community leaders were replacing faculty and administration as trustees.[26] During Ashe's presidency, the University of Miami grew considerably, adding the School of Law (1928),[32] the School of Business (1929), the School of Education (1929), the Graduate School (1941), the Marine Laboratory (1943, renamed the Rosenstiel School in 1969), the School of Engineering (1947), and the School of Medicine (1952).[28]

During World War II, the University of Miami was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program, which offered students a path to commissioning as a U.S. Navy officer.[33]

Jay F. W. Pearson (1952 until 1962)Edit

In 1952, Jay F. W. Pearson, one of Ashe's long-time assistants, was appointed the University of Miami's second president.[34] A charter faculty member and a marine biologist by trade,[34] Pearson retained the position until 1962.[21] Under Pearson's leadership, the University of Miami began awarding its first doctorate degrees and saw student enrollment increase substantially to over 4,000.[21][35]

From 1961 until 1968, the University of Miami leased buildings on its south campus to serve as the covert headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency's JMWAVE operation against Fidel Castro's government in Cuba.[36] The university no longer owns land at the south campus.

In 1961, the university dropped its policy of racial segregation and began admitting Black students.[35][37] African Americans were also allowed full participation in student activities and sports teams.[38] In 1966, the University of Miami signed Ray Bellamy, an African American, to a scholarship, making the University of Miami the first major college in the Deep South with a Black football player on scholarship.[39]

Historically, as was common at the time at most universities and colleges, the university regulated female student conduct more than men's conduct with a staff under the Dean of Women watching over female students. Under Pearson, the university combined the separate Dean of Men and Dean of Women positions in 1971.[40] In 1971, the University of Miami formed a Women's Commission, which issued a 1974 report on the status of women on campus.[41] The result was the University of Miami's first female commencement speaker,[42] day care, and the launch of a Women's Study minor. Following the enactment of Title IX in 1972 and decades of litigation, University of Miami organizations, including honorary societies, were opened to women's participation and inclusion. The Women's Commission also sought more equitable funding for women's sports.[43] In 1973, Terry Williams Munz became the first woman in the United States awarded an athletic scholarship when she accepted a golf scholarship from the University of Miami.[44]

Henry King Stanford (1962 until 1981)Edit

Henry King Stanford became the University of Miami's third president in 1962.[45] The Stanford presidency saw increased emphasis on research, reorganization of administrative structure and the construction of new campus facilities. Among the new research centers established were the Center for Advanced International Studies (1964), the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Evolution (1964), the Center for Theoretical Studies (1965), and the Institute for the Study of Aging (1975). Under Stanford, in 1965, the University of Miami also began to actively recruit international students.[28] With the start of the 1968 football season, Stanford also barred the playing of "Dixie" by the university's band.[28]

Edward T. Foote II (1981 until 2000)Edit

In 1981, Edward T. Foote II became the University of Miami's fourth president.[46] Under Foote's leadership, on-campus student housing was converted into a system of residential colleges[47] and Foote initiated a five-year $400 million fundraising campaign for the University of Miami that began in 1984 and ultimately raised $517.5 million.[48][49] Under Foote, the University of Miami's endowment expanded almost ten-fold under his leadership from $47.4 million in 1981 to $465.2 million in 2000.[48]

Donna Shalala (2000 until 2015)Edit

Foote was succeeded by Donna Shalala, who was named the University of Miami's fifth president in November 2000.[50] Under Shalala, the University of Miami built new libraries, dormitories, symphony rehearsal halls, and classroom buildings. The university's academic quality and the academic quality of its incoming students also continued improving, a trend that began in earnest under Foote.[51]

In the early hours of November 5, 2001, an 18-year-old University of Miami fraternity pledge drowned while attempting to swim across Lake Osceola, the campus lake, while intoxicated. Swimming in Lake Osceola, which was already prohibited by the university, was subsequently made punishable by expulsion. Police reports later cited the student's dangerously high blood alcohol content in conjunction with dropping water temperatures and exhaustion as the primary factors in his death, and two fraternity members who accompanied him were criminally charged with "negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of duty to aid and/or rescue."[52][53]

In 2002,[54] the University of Miami launched a new multi-year fundraising campaign that ultimately raised $1.37 billion,[55] the most money raised by any college in Florida history as of February 8, 2008.[56] From those proceeds, $854 million was allocated to construction of the University of Miami's Leonard M. School of Medicine medical campus.[55] On November 30, 2007, the University of Miami acquired the Cedars Medical Center in Miami's Health District and renamed it University of Miami Hospital, giving the Miller School of Medicine an in-house teaching hospital rather than having to rely on academic affiliations with area hospitals.[57]

In 2003, Shalala closed the University of Miami's North-South Center, which was established by the U.S. Congress in 1984, had secured a partnership with the Rand Corporation, and had become, as Associated Press reported in 2003, "a respected public policy think tank specializing in Latin American and Caribbean issues including trade and economic policy, migration, security, public corruption, and the environment."[58]

On September 30, 2004, the University of Miami hosted one of the three nationally televised U.S. presidential debates between presidential candidates George W. Bush and John Kerry during the 2004 presidential election. The debate, which was moderated by Jim Lehrer of PBS NewsHour, was held in the University of Miami's Watsco Center and was viewed by 62.5 million people.[59]

In 2005, the University of Miami introduced a sustainability initiative, called "Green U" initiative, which includes LEED certification for buildings and the use of biofuels by the campus bus fleet.[60]

On February 28, 2006, the University of Miami's custodial workers, who were contracted to the university by a Boston-based company, alleged unfair labor practices, substandard pay, lack of health benefits, and workplace safety and began a strike, which was supported by University of Miami students who began a hunger strike and on-campus vigil in support of the workers. The strike was settled on May 1, 2006, with a card count union vote that led to the establishment of the University of Miami's first collective bargaining unit in the university's history.[61][62][63] The university raised wages for its custodial workers from $6.40 to $8.35 per hour and provided health insurance.[64]

In October 2006, the University of Miami established the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy.[65]

In 2008 and 2009, an economic slowdown led to a 26.8 percent loss in the university's endowment and an associated reduction in its endowment income, and the university responded by tightening expenditures.[66][67] However, damage from the endowment's negative performance was limited because the University of Miami receives more than 98 percent of its operating budget from other sources.[66] In 2011, despite the endowment's performance, the University of Miami was ranked the nation's most fiscally-responsible nonprofit organization by Worth magazine in a report issued in collaboration with nonprofit watchdog Charity Navigator.[68]

In 2010, the university launched the R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program to educate students on the importance of protecting the marine environment.[69]

Julio Frenk (2015 until present)Edit

On April 13, 2015, the University of Miami announced the appointment of Julio Frenk, the former dean of the Harvard University School of Public Health and former Secretary of Health for the government of Mexico, as the university's sixth president.[70]

CampusEdit

Coral Gables campusEdit

The University of Miami's main campus spans 240 acres (0.97 km2)[71] in Coral Gables, 5 miles (8.0 km) south of downtown Miami. Most of the University of Miami's academic programs are based on the main campus in Coral Gables, which houses seven schools and two colleges, including the University of Miami School of Law. The campus has over 5,900,000 sq ft (550,000 m2) of building space valued in excess of $657 million.[72] Lake Osceola, a man-made freshwater lake developed in the late 1940s, is located at the center of campus.

The University of Miami's campus theater is the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre, named for University of Miami alumnus Jerry Herman, composer and lyricist of Hello Dolly!, La Cage aux Folles, and other Broadway theatre hits.[73]

The John C. Gifford Arboretum, a campus arboretum and botanical garden, is located on the northwest corner of the main Coral Gables campus.[74] The Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center at the University of Miami's School of Architecture holds periodic architecture and design exhibitions.[75][76]

Transportation to the Coral Gables campus is served by the Miami Metrorail at University Station.[77] The Metro connects the University of Miami to downtown Miami, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Civic Center, Miami International Airport, and other Miami neighborhoods. The University of Miami's Coral Gables campus is about a 15-minute train ride from Downtown and Brickell.[78] The Hurry 'Canes shuttle bus service operates two routes on campus (as well as to University Station) and weekend routes to various off-campus stores and facilities during the school year; an additional shuttle route provides service to the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campus on Virginia Key and Vizcaya station. The university also has a Zipcar service.

In 2018, rap artist Drake filmed the music video for his song "God's Plan" at the University of Miami.[79][80]

Student housingEdit

Hecht Residential College 1968 850
Stanford Residential College 1968 850
University Village 2006 800
Lakeside Village 2020 1,115
Total 5,415

The University of Miami's main campus in Coral Gables houses 5,415 enrolled students. This group is disproportionately freshmen (89 percent of new freshmen live on campus compared with 39 percent of all degree undergraduates).[15] The university's on-campus housing consists of five residential colleges and one apartment-style housing area available only to undergraduate degree-seeking students. The residential colleges are divided into two dormitory-style residence halls and three suite-style residence halls. The McDonald and Pentland Towers of Hecht Residential College[82] and the Walsh and Rosborough Towers of Stanford Residential College[83] are commonly referred to as the "Freshman Towers". Eaton Residential College, which originally housed only women,[84] and the Mahoney/Pearson Residential Colleges[85][86] have suite-style housing with every two double-occupancy rooms connected by a shared bathroom.

In addition to these five residential colleges, the University of Miami campus also has a student residential area called University Village,[87] which consists of seven buildings with apartment-style annual contract housing with fully furnished kitchen facilities. The University Village is only open to juniors and seniors, but was previously open to graduate students and students of the School of Law until July 31, 2009; after this date, there has been no housing available for any graduate students on the Coral Gables campus.[88][89] The University of Miami also has a series of fraternity houses, opposite the intramural fields on San Amaro Drive, dubbed "Fraternity Row". Sororities are housed in on-campus suites, which do not serve as residences to members.

The Lakeside Village, a residential complex of 25 interconnected buildings, provides student housing for 1,115 sophomores, juniors and seniors. This $153 million project was completed in August 2020.[90]

Medical school campusEdit

 
Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, the primary teaching hospital of the University of Miami's Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine and the largest hospital in the United States with 1,547 beds[91]

The University of Miami's Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine campus, located on Northwest 10th Avenue in Miami's Health District, trains 1,000 students annually in various health-related programs.[92] The campus consists of 70 acres (280,000 m2) within the 153 acres (620,000 m2) of the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Medical Center complex.

The medical center includes three University of Miami-owned hospitals: University of Miami Hospital, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Anne Bates Leach Eye Hospital. Jackson Memorial Hospital, Holtz Children's Hospital, and the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center are also a part of the medical center and are affiliated with the University of Miami but are not owned by the university.[93] The heart of the School of Medicine campus is "The Alamo", the original City of Miami Hospital, which opened in 1918 and now is on the National Register of Historic Places.[92][94]

In 2006, the University of Miami opened a 300,000 sq ft (28,000 m2), 15-story Clinical Research Building and Wellness Center.[92] In 2007, the university purchased Cedars Medical Center and renamed it University of Miami Hospital. Situated in the Miami Health District, the hospital is close to the Jackson Memorial Hospital, which is used by University of Miami medical students and faculty to provide patient care.[95]

In 2009, a LEED-certified nine-story biomedical research building, a 182,000 sq ft (16,900 m2) laboratory and an office facility were opened to house the University of Miami's Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute and the Miami Institute for Human Genomics.[96] The University of Miami has completed a 2,000,000 sq ft (190,000 m2) Life Science Park adjacent to the university's medical campus that houses office space and laboratories.[97][98] The University of Miami's medical campus is connected to the university's main campus by the Miami Metrorail with direct stations at University Station for the main Coral Gables campus and Civic Center Station for the medical campus.

Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campusEdit

 
The Applied Marine Physics Building at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science on Virginia Key, September 2007

The University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, which comprises 18 acres (73,000 m2) on the Biscayne Bay waterfront on Virginia Key, is the only subtropical marine and atmospheric research institute in the continental United States. The school is also home to the world's largest hurricane simulation tank.[99][100] The Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, a federal research laboratory, is headquartered next to the Rosenstiel School campus on Rickenbacker Causeway.

The school also maintains a research facility on the eastern end of Barbados, the Rosenstiel School's Barbados Atmospheric Chemistry Observatory (BACO), that documents the summertime transport of Saharan dust particles across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean Basin and South America.[101]

The school's origins date back to 1945 when construction began on Rickenbacker Causeway to make Virginia Key accessible by car. During the Causeway's construction that year, Miami-Dade County offered the university a part of the island adjacent to Miami Seaquarium in exchange for it agreeing to operate the aquarium.[102] However, the aquarium construction was delayed when a bond referendum failed, so the university leased the land in 1951. In 1953, the university built classroom and lab buildings on a 16-acre (6.5 ha) campus to house what would become the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS). Additional buildings were added in 1957, 1959 and 1965.[102] From 1947 to 1959, the State of Florida funded the University of Miami Marine Lab on Virginia Key until the state built a separate marine laboratory in St. Petersburg.[102] In 2009, the University of Miami received a $15 million federal grant to help construct a new $43.8 million, 56,500 square feet (5,250 m2) Marine Technology and Life Sciences Seawater Research Building on its Rosenstiel School campus.[103]

As part of its campus-wide free shuttle service, the University of Miami operates a route from the main Coral Gables campus to the Rosenstiel School, which includes stops at the Vizcaya station on weekdays.[89][104]

South and Richmond campusesEdit

In 1946, the University of Miami acquired the former Richmond Naval Air Station in southwestern Miami, 12 mi (19 km) south of the main campus in order to accommodate the post-war increase in students. The campus was acquired immediately following World War II and provided classrooms, housing, and other amenities for about 1,100 students (mostly freshmen) for two academic years. In 1948, it was repurposed by the University of Miami as a research facility.[105] In the 1960s, some of the buildings were leased to the Central Intelligence Agency. The South Campus Grove was a 350 acres (1,400,000 m2) plot for agricultural research and horticultural studies that was established in 1948.[27][105] For 20 years, the University of Miami used radioactive isotopes in biological research on the South Campus, and buried materials included irradiated animals on the site. In August 2006, the University of Miami agreed to reimburse the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers $393,473 for clean-up costs under the 1980 Superfund law.[106] Its six buildings provide 63,800 sq ft (5,930 m2)[93] to currently house the Global Public Health Research Group, Miami Institute for Human Genomics, and Forensic Toxicology Laboratory).[107] The University of Miami once planned to build a south campus on the property but opted in 2014 to sell the 80 acres of land instead.[108]

The Richmond campus is a 76 acres (310,000 m2) site that was formerly the United States Naval Observatory Secondary National Time Standard Facility, which already had buildings and a 20M antenna used for Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI).[109] The University of Miami's Rosenstiel School's Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing and Richmond Satellite Operations Center (RSOC) have research facilities on part of the new campus.

LibrariesEdit

The Richter Library (in background) with University Foote Green and the U Statue (in foreground) on the University of Miami campus, November 2020

The University of Miami's libraries collectively hold over four million volumes, over four million microforms, over 1.3 million electronic books, 138,402 active serials titles, 137,723 electronic journals, and 210,000 audio, film, video, and cartographic materials.[15] The University of Miami's libraries have a staff of 71 librarians, 33 professional staff, and 76 support staff.[110][111]

Four of the University of Miami's libraries are located on Coral Gables campus, including the Otto G. Richter Library (the university's primary inter-disciplinary library), the Architecture Research Center at the School of Architecture, the Judi Prokop Newman Information Resource Center at the School of Business, and the Marta and Austin Weeks Library at the Frost School of Music.

The School of Medicine's main library, the Louis Calder Memorial Library, is located on Northwest 10th Avenue on the medical campus in the Miami Health District. The medical school also has specialized libraries in ophthalmology (the Mary and Edward Norton Library) and in psychiatry (Pomerance Library). The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science Library is based on the Rosentiel School's campus on Virginia Key.[16]

Otto G. Richter Library houses collections that serve the arts, architecture, humanities, social sciences, and the sciences. It is a depository for federal and state government publications.[112] Rare books, maps, manuscript collections, and the University of Miami Archives are housed in the library's Special Collections Division and in the Cuban Heritage Collection.

In January 2017, the Jay I. Kislak Foundation announced that it was making a substantial donation of rare books, maps, and manuscripts to the university's libraries and to Miami Dade College. The University of Miami renovated a former lecture hall, now the Kislak Center at the University of Miami, to house the foundation's donated collection along with the existing special collections and university archives. The Kislak Foundation collection includes Christopher Columbus' earliest published copies of his letter on the first voyage aboard the Niña, which Columbus authored on February 15, 1493.[113]

AcademicsEdit

There are currently 2,697 full-time faculty members at the University of Miami with 98 percent of regular faculty holding doctorates or terminal degrees in their respective specialties.[3] The University of Miami's student-faculty ratio is 12:1.[114]
