Goals and Objectives

The CVSMU goals are to involve Miami University faculty, students and the community as a whole in activities supported by the center. These activities include a seminar series and outreach programs to educate the public on the importance of vision research. Other activities include the fostering of collaborative, vision-centered projects between the members of the center as well as with other faculty.

An additional important goal is to support graduate and undergraduate student vision research by providing student research awards.
