UC Foundation President

Peter E. Landgren

Peter LandgrenPeter Landgren was named President of the University of Cincinnati Foundation and Vice President for Advancement at UC in August 2017 and took office Oct. 2, 2017. In his role, Landgren oversees all philanthropic efforts for the university and UC Health and alumni engagement through the University of Cincinnati Alumni Association.

Landgren, an alumnus of the UC’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), previously served as Interim Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost of the university, as well as Dean of CCM.

And, as a UC alumnus, he brings a distinct passion and connection to UC’s values and mission.
