What We Do

The Office of Hemispheric and Global Affairs (OHGA) works across our schools, colleges, and centers of excellence with the ultimate goal of increasing our hemispheric and global interactions in education, research, innovation and service programs. Through its strategic initiatives, the OHGA is central in supporting the University of Miami's Roadmap to Our New Century and positioning UM as the Hemispheric University.

Strategic Goals

  • Highlighting our hemispheric and global relevance by mapping UM's international engagement activities through the development of a database.
  • Creating international opportunities for education, research, innovation, hemispheric study and the University Health System.
  • Conforming the Hemispheric University Consortium to develop problem-based collaborations to address real-world challenges facing the hemisphere.
  • Increasing our global reach and relevance in the hemisphere and the world.
  • Creating links to become the hemispheric hub for innovation.
