The Ibis Society is named for the University of Miami’s mascot, the Ibis – an ancient symbol of enlightenment. Early Egyptians used the Ibis as a symbol of wisdom, and the modern White Ibis is native to South Florida.
The Ibis Society honors those whose total commitment to the University has reached at least $250,000. Individual members of the Society are recognized with a copper medallion suspended from an orange ribbon. Members receive a specially-commissioned glass engraving bearing the name of the society.
