About Us

University Operations and External Affairs fosters collaboration. We strive every day to embody the culture of excellence and continuous improvement that has built the University of Miami.


We support our stakeholders throughout their interactions with the University. This begins with our students. The Division of Enrollment Management recruits a student body with a dynamic range of experiences, whose common ambition is applying their talents to build a better tomorrow for themselves, their families, and their communities both locally and globally.

Several areas within our division work to enhance our campuses, creating safe, efficient, data-informed environments designed to help our students, employees, and communities excel. These include the Department of Facilities Operations and Planning; the University of Miami Police Department; the Office of University Compliance Services and Office of Audit and Advisory Services; as well as the Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Analytics.

Other units nurture relationships that allow our partners to invest in the University and the communities we impact. These include the Division of Development and Alumni Relations, the Office of the Board Secretary and the Office of Government and Community Relations.

As champions and protectors of the University’s reputation, the Office of University Communications and the Office of UHealth Marketing, Communications, and Physician Relations help tell the story of why the University of Miami is one of the leading research universities in America and how our renowned academic medical enterprise serves our patients.

Whether supporting our colleagues and community by growing resources, lifting the brand, improving our campuses, or developing best practices in transparency and accountability—we help facilitate the transformation driven by our students, faculty, staff, and leaders.
