For more than 15 years, Winter College has provided the opportunity to relive the Miami Experience by returning to the classroom for thought-provoking lectures from Miami’s top faculty and experts. This year, we’re bringing the Miami Experience to you virtually.  Join us at this page for the following special presentation:

Wayne Embry ’58 has a career spanning nearly 50 years with the NBA. He broke racial barriers as a student-athlete at Miami, as an NBA player and as an NBA executive. Basketball, baseball and football were some of the first areas that Black Americans were able to break racial boundaries. Wayne sits down with Breanna Robinson ‘08, MS ‘11, Assistant Athletic Director for Leadership & Diversity, Miami University Intercollegiate Athletics and David Sayler, Athletic Director, Miami University Intercollegiate Athletics to talk about his experiences as a player and manager and how sports is a unifying force that brings together people from all walks of life to achieve common goals.

You do not need to register for this specific online event, but we encourage you to register for Winter College to get a listing of all lecture web links.  Simply return to this same page to watch the event on Saturday Feb. 27 at 1:00 PM EST.  Please reach out to Michelle Martin Rosecrans with any questions at
