The University of Miami (also known as Miami of Florida, UM, or just The U) is a private, non-sectarian university founded in 1925 in the city of Coral Gables, Florida, United States, close to Miami. The university currently enrolls 15,449 students in approximately 115 undergraduate, 114 master’s, 51 doctoral, and two professional areas of study. The University’s students represent all 50 states and 148 foreign countries. There are currently 2,348 full-time faculty members whose ranks include Guggenheim fellows, Fulbright Scholars and National Science Foundation recipients. Of this distinguished faculty, 97% hold doctorates or terminal degrees in their field. With more than 10,800 full and part-time faculty and staff, UM is the second largest private employer in Miami-Dade County. The University of Miami is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and 23 additional professional and educational accrediting agencies. UM is a member of the American Association of University Women, the American Council on Education, the American Council of Learned Societies, the Association of American Colleges, the Florida Association of Colleges and Universities, and the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. "Momentum: The Campaign for the University of Miami" was a fundraising effort launched in 2003 with the goal of raising $1 billion dollars to improve facilities, recruit world-renowned faculty and expand the number of endowed student scholarships. At the close of the campaign, UM became the youngest university in the nation and the first in Florida to reach the billion dollar mark, raising $1.4 billion as of February 2008. Of the 56 universities that have run billion dollar campaigns, UM is the only private institution and one of only four established in the 20th Century to achieve this milestone.
