Sebastian is captured on camera stepping on the University seal.
Yikes! Sebastian, the University of Miami’s beloved mascot, will be detained on Thursday, November 21, for stepping on the University seal in front of the UC Bookstore. Based on a complaint filed by the Department of Real Estate and Facilities, which captured Sebastian’s audacious act on camera, University of Miami Police plan to take Sebastian into custody from the Newman Alumni Center and detain him at The UC Rock. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to help bail him out by dropping cash or checks off at the Rock between 1 and 3 p.m. Upon his release, the Department of Real Estate and Facilities promises to destroy the incriminating evidence, the aforementioned photograph, and send all proceeds to the United Way.

Papper Professor and Chair of the Department of Anesthesiology; and Miami Heat mascot Burnie.
The University of Miami has been a proud supporter of the United Way of Miami-Dade for almost 40 years. Last year’s TeamUM United Way campaign raised more than $1 million, with two departments—Information Technology and Anesthesiology—being the highest-performing units during the annual fundraising drive, raising more than $57,900 and $55,900, respectively.
The two departments were recognized at halftime of the Miami Heat’s final preseason game on October 25 at American Airlines Arena. Accepting the honors for their respective units were Steve Cawley, vice president and chief information officer for UM Information Technology, and David Lubarsky, Emanuel M. Papper Professor and Chair of the Department of Anesthesiology.
The evening featured pregame activities for UM faculty and staff, who were awarded tickets to the game for making United Way pledges.
