Citizens Board

Established in 1946, the University of Miami Citizens Board is a select group of more than 250 business, professional, and civic leaders who actively support the University's philanthropic efforts and promote UM programs. Since its inception, the Citizens Board has raised an estimated $454 million for the University and advanced 97 CB members to the University’s Board of Trustees.

Membership is by invitation only. We count on each member to make an annual unrestricted contribution to the University and to secure funds from other individuals, corporations and foundations. Members expand their knowledge of the University through firsthand contact with students, faculty, administrators, and facilities on all of the University's campuses. Members are encouraged to share information and insight gained through these encounters with the South Florida community.
