“Coffee with the Chief” allows for a conversation between Chief Rivero and members of the UM community. It is intended to create a relaxed atmosphere to casually discuss areas of concern and/or suggestions for improvement.

Chief Rivero has a standing appointment for coffee with anyone from the UM community who would like to come by on the first Tuesday of each month, from 9am to 11am. If you have interest in attending such a session, please check this webpage or social media (Twitter or Facebook) to ensure there have been no cancelations.

All sessions are held at the Starbucks located inside the Shalala Center (SAC) building, 1st floor.

If you (or a small group of you and your friends, 5 or less in number) are interested in participating exclusively or at a date/time of your choosing, please contact John Gulla via email at JGulla@miami.edu and provide the following info in the email:
