University of Cincinnati Foundation
next lives here


Our past wasn’t written with one pen.

Our present isn’t defined by one person.

Our future won’t fit one perspective.

At the University of Cincinnati, it takes all of us.

For the last 200 years, generations have come together to move UC ahead of the rest in influencing and impacting our region, nation and world; we have led the way in experiential education, elevated our academic reputation and afforded transformative opportunities when they were needed most.

Where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going aren’t directed or determined by an individual, but by all of us who support and believe in this university.

When you invest in the priorities of Next Lives Here, you are propelling UC’s future forward through a campus culture that’s owned—not rented—and built on an inventive, nimble framework:


Creating a new chapter for academic excellence where learning is not only a product of education but also a platform for success.


Establishing UC in Cincinnati as a leader in solving the world’s urban issues.


Breaking the boundaries on innovative research, experiential learning, co-op and the classroom experience.


This isn't "business as usual." We have meaningful work to do, and we can't do it without you and others who are committed to UC's future.

Join us as we lead urban public universities into a new era of innovation and impact. Let's show the world that, with all of us behind it, Next Lives Here at the University of Cincinnati.
