International Stops for Accelerating Ambition and
Impact of U Tours

The University of Miami Alumni Association has had the pleasure of leading an international program of receptions and strategic fundraising visits with the architect of this visionary course, Thomas J. LeBlanc, executive vice president and provost. Provost LeBlanc’s Accelerating Ambition tour concluded in spring 2013 with two international tour stops in Madrid and London. Provost LeBlanc has shared with alumni, parents, students, and friends of the University of Miami details about this unique educational heritage and the goals for creating the UM of tomorrow.

Provost LeBlanc's Accelerating Ambition tour included two international stops in Madrid and London in spring 2013 and we will be hosting receptions at Hilton Tokyo Hotel on April 23rd, Westin Beijing Chaoyang Hotel on April 25th, and Le Royal Meridian Shanghai Hotel on April 26th. Online registration will be opening soon. Details will soon be announced.

On the heels of Provost LeBlanc’s Accelerating Ambition tour, the University of Miami Alumni Association is taking President Donna E. Shalala on the road for the Impact of U tour, a twenty city journey over two years. We have already completed year one with ten cities visited. This is a special journey with our president as she reflects on our shared history and how each of us continues to have an impact on building the next great American research university. She visited Bogota, Colombia in April 2013 and London, England in November 2013.
