Cooperative Education turns 100 this year! And as part of the many celebrations marking this centennial birthday year, the University of Cincinnati will select individuals and institutions key in co-op history for induction into a Co-op Hall of Honor.

These first honorees will be formally honored at a celebratory banquet to be held on the UC campus at 7 p.m., April 24, 2006, in the Great Hall and in Rooms 400A and 400C of Tangeman University Center. In attendance will be representatives from about 500 co-op colleges and universities in the United States along with representatives from co-op universities in Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore.

At that event, UC will also display a simulation of a new 15,000 square foot garden named for co-op’s founder, Herman Schneider. That garden will be located between McMicken Hall, the Joseph A. Steger Student Life Center and Baldwin Hall. This Herman Schneider Memorial Garden will eventually include low, granite seating-walls containing the names of the Co-op Hall of Honor inductees, a co-op timeline and other information relating to co-op.
