OPINION

What Miami’s identity means for regional campus students

What do the Middletown and Hamilton campuses look like? What kinds of courses are taught there? Have you ever met a Middletown or Hamilton student? I have been a student at Miami Oxford for all of one semester, so you may assign appropriate weight to my comments, but I would assume 90 percent of Oxford students have never even seen the Middletown or Hamilton campuses, let alone met a student or taken a class at either of these campuses.


OPINION

Open letter to President Hodge: Miami needs to step up to improve reception of international students

We, the undersigned faculty of the Asian and Asian American Studies Program and other concerned faculty, staff and students at Miami University, unequivocally disagree with the anonymous faculty member who wrote the opinion piece, "Admitting international students for the wrong reasons brings down the university," published on Nov. 4, 2014, in The Miami Student. We also join our colleagues in the English Department and other Miami faculty, staff, students and alumni, to express our enthusiastic support for all international students, whom we see as an invaluable resource for a university committed to offering a global education based on four principles: thinking critically, understanding contexts, engaging with other learners and reflecting and acting. However, international students face many challenges that need to be addressed in order for their skills, experiences and backgrounds to be fully realized for all members of Miami, and for them to be welcomed as full Miamians.
