PROTECTING A FRAGILE WORLD

“We need to better understand the enormous loads exerted by waves during tsunamis and hurricanes. When they move into coastal areas, these waves can destroy everything in their paths, from buildings to cars to ships. So we are studying how waves generate, propagate, and dissipate their energy. The goal is to discover how to make coastal structures more resilient and protect life and property during extreme weather events.” Brian Haus, a professor of applied marine physics at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, is principal investigator of UM’s planned SUSTAIN (Surge-Structure-Atmosphere Interaction) laboratory. SUSTAIN will be the only facility in the world with a wind-wave-storm surge simulator capable of generating hurricane-force winds in a 3-D test environment.

NEW WORLDS OF WELLNESS

“Some of our patients had damage to their hearts from heart attacks more than a decade earlier. Stem cell injections improved function in the damaged area of the heart and then reduced the size and scarring of the heart—even injuries dating from long-ago heart attacks. This could represent a major breakthrough in improving the health and well-being of heart patients. It’s a big deal.” Joshua M. Hare, director of the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute, is senior author of a study reporting on a clinical trial in which stem cells injected into the enlarged hearts of heart attack survivors reduced heart size and scar tissue while improving function. The research team, co-led by interventional cardiologist Alan Heldman, found that heart size decreased an average of 15 to 20 percent—about three times what is possible with current medical therapies.

Maria Abreu, professor of medicine and the Martin H. Kalser, M.D., Ph.D. Endowed Chair of Gastroenterology at the Miller School of Medicine, leads a research team studying diseases such as Crohn’s disease, IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), and colorectal cancer. Abreu and her colleagues have made significant discoveries about the development of colorectal cancer, the third-deadliest malignancy in the U.S., and have created a large tissue and DNA database that could yield fresh insights into IBD. Abreu notes that endowed chairs, stipends for post-doctoral research fellows, and other generous donations contribute significantly to her research: “Philanthropy is, in many ways, the catalyst for the work we do.” 42

University rescue activities after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti began with medical relief services led by the Miller School’s Barth Green, cofounder of Project Medishare.

Building a Healthier Community Miller school

Miller School of Medicine public health initiatives, many made possible by philanthropic support, make an enormous positive impact on the lives of our neighbors. These programs include advocacy and education to help underserved neighborhoods fighting chronic disease, primary health services for children in several Miami-Dade schools, and annual health fairs staffed by UM medical students.

of medicine: key goals Build a biomedical research powerhouse Invest in leading-edge facilities and equipment Transform the face of medicine/clinical initiatives Train the next generation of physician-scientists

The Miller School’s definition of “community” extends beyond South Florida. Reaching out to the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake of January 2010, UM medical faculty members began arriving in Port-au-Prince within 24 hours to deliver emergency care for survivors— the first, urgently needed steps in what would become a massive, University-wide relief effort. The University is dedicated to leveraging its distinctive intellectual assets in transformative ways to spearhead new public health insights—and to produce a generation of leaders with the expertise to promote well-being across diverse populations. Toward that end, the University has recently launched an innovative M.D./M.P.H. program at the Miller School, as well as a B.S. program in public health at the School of Nursing and Health Studies. When our neighbors are healthier, so is our community as a whole—which is why gifts to public health research, education, and services provide truly priceless benefits.

Enriching Learning across the University The University of Miami encompasses an unusual variety of schools, colleges, and programs for a private academic institution of its size, providing students with extraordinary opportunities to explore their interests and customize their studies. The more than 157,000 living alumni whose lives were transformed by both their academic experiences and their participation in the U’s unique campus community are among the University’s most important constituencies.

UM alumni contributed in record numbers to the first Momentum campaign and will play a key role in Momentum2. In addition to giving generously to their respective programs and new initiatives, alumni are the

cornerstone of the University’s Annual Fund. This vital resource complements capital campaign efforts by providing immediate, flexible support for top priorities such as student aid and enhanced learning opportunities.

The Robert and Judi Prokop Newman Alumni Center, a magnificent facility funded exclusively by alumni contributions, vividly reflects the generosity of UM alumni during the first Momentum campaign.

University Libraries

Lowe Art Museum

A valuable partner in the scholarship and research enterprises of the University, UM Libraries have recently taken bold steps to expand and digitize important collections while concurrently enhancing physical infrastructure. Collections now include 3.5 million volumes, including many e-books, and more than 80,000 current print and electronic serials, placing the system among the top 50 research libraries in North America.

A vital part of the University and one of the region’s most extraordinary cultural resources, the Lowe Art Museum offers an array of exhibitions and educational programs, contributes to scholarly research, and preserves historically significant art and artifacts. Since opening in 1952 as the first freestanding art museum in South Florida, the Lowe, now administered by the College of Arts and Sciences, has vividly reflected the area’s rich cultural diversity and dramatic growth over six decades.

Momentum2 will empower the Libraries to build the UM Virtual Library, providing access to information anywhere at any time, and access will be broadened to services in the digital humanities, digital scholarship, and the e-sciences. The campaign also will support innovation in the presentation and documentation of scholarship in digital spaces, and UM’s Academic Computing and Digital Media Labs will be expanded to help students to work in these new frontiers. Another key goal is to build unique and distinctive collections: the Special Collections, the University Archives, and the Cuban Heritage Collection. Momentum2 will support the acquisition and preservation of rare source materials to build even more distinctive, important holdings at the University. The campaign will also provide endowment for key positions to lead centers of excellence.

Through resources raised in Momentum2, the Lowe plans to enhance its service to the University and the community at large by expanding programming such as family days, named lectures by noted experts, and workshops for students and the general public. The museum’s role as a center of education will be strengthened through the creation of an arts study center where students can work directly with art objects, and a new sculpture garden will provide a dramatic setting for outdoor events. Endowed funds are sought for the directorship of the museum to ensure continuity of outstanding leadership in this critical position. Among the Lowe’s campaign goals are philanthropic donations for the acquisition of art that advances the museum’s specific collecting needs; gifts of such works are also welcome.

F u lfilling E d u cation ’ s Vast P otential

As native Miamians, we have been enormously gratified as our vibrant, multicultural city—and the University that shares both its name and its spirit—gain broad recognition for their unique contributions to every aspect of contemporary life. Today the University of Miami is, indisputably, one of the world’s great academic institutions. The University’s remarkable achievements are the direct result of a clear vision and relentless focus on getting better every day. These achievements, in turn, attract outstanding students and faculty, further improving the quality of education and research at the U. Continuing this cycle of progress demands strategic investments in institutional priorities such as innovative interdisciplinary programs, state-of-the-art facilities, and the recruitment of outstanding scholars. Student scholarships, which make such a dramatic difference in young lives, offer wonderful philanthropic opportunities. And, to ensure the University’s long-term stability, its endowment must be greatly strengthened. The University of Miami’s commitment to excellence has inspired, in our own family, a tradition of service to the University for more than 85 years—and an emotional connection that has deepened as our own son pursues his education at UM. The Momentum2 campaign promises to build the University’s beneficial impact in countless ways—including many that none of us can yet imagine. We invite you to join us in this historic initiative.
