BaShaun Smith is the new Dean of Students for Miami University.

'The movie and the book were perfect': BaShaun Smith is ready to be Miami's Dean of Students

  On Aug. 22, BaShaun Smith sat in a virtually empty office in Warfield Hall at Miami University, with his new home in Oxford just as empty. He guessed he had only unpacked three boxes so far. The reason for the barren bookshelf and the sudden move? He received an offer as Miami’s new Dean of Students with just four weeks to relocate from North Carolina to Oxford in time for move-in.

A student speaks with Abel Stose, chief of police of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, whose visit to Oxford was sponsored by the Menard Center.

High school teenagers gather in a circle, engaged in passionate discussions of contemporary politics. Six college students work with a nonprofit to provide aid for displaced refugees. Another student assists a summer camp for homeless children, and another creates a documentary about the importance of public libraries.
