Next Lives Here

It’s not easy to push past potential. Yet that’s what you’ll find happening each day at the University of Cincinnati. As a Carnegie 1, research-intensive institution, UC is leading urban public universities into a new era of innovation, inclusion and impact. We collaborate across disciplines, colleges, campuses and corporations, to address the most pressing challenges—in our own city and across the globe. How do we do it? Shared character, woven through our ranks of 300,000 strong. An abundance of determination, a dash of grit, and an inner strength that’s forged in our classrooms and perfected throughout the world. This is a collective call to action, to root for the real work that quietly makes meaning in our world.

Education is different at UC. We invented co-op in 1906. Today, experience-based learning is still part of our DNA with co-op students in 21 countries. And every student has the opportunity for real, meaningful career exploration. It’s not just “education, unleashed,” it’s a promise that every Bearcat graduates with a degree, a resume and a plan for their future career.


Working at UC

Our passion is the boundless pursuit of knowledge and, most importantly, experience. In a culture that is owned, not rented, every UC employee has the opportunity to create their ideal future.

Our newly launched 1819 Innovation Hub is a place for faculty, researchers, entrepreneurs and students to transform ideas into impact. By re-imagining how—and how fast—technology commercialization happens, we’re creating opportunities for startups and additional income streams, for cross-disciplinary partnerships and industry collaborations, and for next-generation thinking, making, and doing. We like to say it’s a conduit to disrupt. And a place where Next happens.

Diversity Profile: University of Cincinnati

Our university has an undeniable interest in supporting our diverse community and fostering equity and inclusion as a driving human and moral imperative as well as an education and learning imperative, a civil and social imperative, and even an economic and innovation imperative.

At the University of Cincinnati, our very mission statement recognizes and underscores the relationship between diversity, inclusion and excellence as critical to our success as a public, urban, research intensive university. These are our bedrock values and fundamental to our very purpose as a university – ultimately enriching the learning and teaching process, introducing students, faculty and staff to a broader canvas of ideas, fostering critical analysis and opening vistas for scholarly inquiry.

All of us learn and work best in an environment where we are accepted, included and heard. That’s when we are more likely to successfully generate good ideas and good solutions in the service of the people of Ohio, the nation and the world by bringing people together who have varying viewpoints and backgrounds to tackle problems and to propose and pursue solutions.

At UC, we invite the world into our classrooms in many different avenues and forms, and we send our students to learn and work around the globe via service learning, study abroad, and our top-ranked cooperative education program – providing students unparalleled opportunities for exposure to widely diverse peoples, cultures, ideas and viewpoints. The university is “home base” as we encourage both local and global engagement to foster openness, competency, exploration, transparency and trust.

And our barometer for success always lies with our campus community, with our students, faculty and staff as we ask: “What lived experiences are to be found here?”

Just so, exploring commonalities and celebrating differences is everyone’s responsibility every day. It’s the yardstick by which we seek to measure our actions and our successes.

This is not to say that we – as a university community or a society – have “arrived” in terms of equity and inclusion. The very fact that we have a diversity plan, that we have a diversity office, that we have these many individuals, groups and units committed to advocacy and action is a clear demonstration that we recognize that the need for greater levels of progress.


The way of progress may not always be swift nor easy, but as a community, we continue to support and inspire one another in building a culture that is uniquely our own.
