At the University of Cincinnati, part of our mission is to ensure that diversity, equity and inclusion thrive. One way to do that is by giving to programs and scholarships which support UC students of color. As we look ahead to Juneteenth, the annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, you can join other Bearcats in empowering UC students from underrepresented populations.

Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program

Offered by UC’s Office of Ethnic Programs & Services, the Turner Scholars Program has a goal of enriching the educational environment for undergraduate students by supporting the recruitment and retention of underrepresented groups with high potential for academic success at UC. Corin Manning ‘24, a second-year Turner Scholar shared,

"I really feel like a lot of kids would not be where they are today without the Turner Program, and that includes me. The support they offer really is unmatched. I was part of several mentorship programs before college, but nothing compared to Turner. I always feel covered by Turner, whether I’m on or off campus, because even through the pandemic, they were making sure we were OK."

African American Cultural & Resource Center (AACRC)

The AACRC helps prepare UC students to become effective leaders by building community and influencing academic excellence through programming and recognition. The impact of the AACRC is felt across campus,

“The AACRC is an institution within itself at UC. It’s a resource for students who are looking to find a home within the university and the AACRC is critical to the social, academic and professional fabric of the university. Alumni and donors feel a responsibility to pay it forward to the AACRC and those individuals at UC who provided guidance and a community that set us on our path.” said Justin Gibson ‘05, Program Director of Alumni and Donor Experience, Diversity and Inclusion.
