According to “The Future Starts Here: The Role of Research Universities in Ohio’s Economy,” (Appleseed, 2006) the University of Cincinnati is estimated to have an annual impact of $1.52 billion on the economy of the State of Ohio, thereby generating $11.71 for every dollar invested by the State of Ohio.
The UC Medical Center, based on 2002 data, calculates an economic impact of $3.59 billion and projects an economic impact by 2006 of $4.19 billion. The Medical Center's $3.59 billion impact on the Tri-State comprises $1.56 billion direct impact and $2.03 billion indirect impact. The Medical Center provides 16,268 full-time equivalent jobs in the Tri-State (up from 14,746 in 1999), making the Medical Center the largest employer in Greater Cincinnati. The "ripple effect" of that direct employment generates a total of nearly 42,000 jobs in Ohio and more than 50,000 jobs in the Tri-State that are directly or indirectly related to the operations of the Medical Center.
The University of Cincinnati attracts students from all 50 of the United States and from 100 countries outside the U.S.

George Rieveschl (1916-2007) invented Benadryl, the first antihistamine. He earned three degrees at the University of Cincinnati: A.B. (1937), M.S. (1939), and Ph.D. (1940). While conducting research at UC, he developed a number of potential antispasmodic compounds. Benadryl, one of these compounds, showed promise as an anti-allergy drug and was first marketed in 1946 by Parke Davis. Rieveschl was named to the International Science and Engineering Hall of Fame in 1995.
Too young to be admitted to the University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering, Winston Kock first enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Music, and never regretted it. When he turned sixteen he transferred to engineering and his undergraduate thesis revolutionized the music world. It was the invention of the electronic organ, the first to generate sound through small vacuum tubes, rather than massive pipes. This feat put an organ within reach of nearly every family that ever dreamed of owning one. His patent for the organ was the first of over eighty that he would receive throughout his career.
An 1892 graduate of the University of Cincinnati, Joseph Strauss astonished the audience at graduation exercises by proposing to bridge the Bering Straits. After working in other firms, he formed his own company in 1902, eventually building more than 500 bridges, and earning 100 patents along the way. The Golden Gate project was the culmination of his career, and, for a time, it was the longest bridge in the world. Strauss placed a brick from UC's original McMicken Hall in the bridge's south anchorage. The bridge was completed in 1937. Strauss died in 1938.
Dr. Albert Sabin, developer of the oral, live virus polio vaccine, began his career in biomedical research in 1926 while still a student at New York University where he received his M.D. degree. He worked at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research from 1935-1939. From 1939 through 1969, Dr. Sabin was successively Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Professor of Research Pediatrics, and Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and The Children's Hospital Research Foundation.
The University of Cincinnati, Ohio’s premier urban research university, traces its origins to 1819. In that year both Cincinnati College and the Medical College of Ohio were chartered. In 1870, the City of Cincinnati established the University of Cincinnati, which later absorbed the two predecessor institutions. In 1906, the University of Cincinnati created the first cooperative education program in the world. For many years, the University of Cincinnati was the second oldest and second largest municipal university in the country. In 1968, UC became a “municipally sponsored, state affiliated” institution, entering a transitional period culminating on July 1, 1977 when UC joined the university system of Ohio. Today, the University of Cincinnati is classified as a Research University (Very High Research Activity) by the Carnegie Commission, and is ranked as one of America’s top 25 public research universities by the National Science Foundation. U.S. News has ranked UC in the Top Tier of America’s Best Colleges. The Chronicle of Higher Education calls UC a “research heavyweight.” Forbes, Delta Sky and Travel + Leisure magazines have named UC one of the most beautiful campuses. UC has been named a “green university” by Princeton Review.
