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:

What does it mean to educate the whole person? What does it mean to engage the head and the heart? What does it mean to learn across difference? How do we re-imagine education for a re-imagined community? In this session, Dr. Tammy Schwartz will share the work of the Urban Cohort, an interdisciplinary, community-based approach to preparing Miami students to work alongside communities for justice. She will engage current and former Urban Cohort students and community partners in a dialogue responding to these questions and what they mean for this moment in history.

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 4:00 PM EST.  Please reach out to Michelle Martin Rosecrans with any questions at
