Each year, the University of Miami Human Resources Office provides a day of programming for the children of staff and faculty members in recognition of the national Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

The children get to participate in a variety of activities throughout the day, beginning with a luncheon and welcome address. Special guests included the Executive Vice President and Provost, Thomas LeBlanc, University's Women Basketball players, Sebastian the Ibis, and Emmy-Award winning journalist and University of Miami Alumni, Jackie Nespral, news anchor for NBC6.

This year, the Miller School of Medicine held its first Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day program. Parents and their children started the day with breakfast and a special welcome by Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the Miller School, Dr. Pascal Goldschmidt.
