DAAP named Ohio Center of Excellence
UC's internationally ranked College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) was recognized in October as an Ohio Center of Excellence in Design and Innovation, in ceremonies led by Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Jim Petro. Ohio is establishing select Centers of Excellence to foster economic development, create jobs, and strengthen the state's ability to commercialize technology innovations.
Regional, state, national and international firms routinely partner with DAAP, in collaboration with other UC colleges, for product and service innovation research. DAAP's programs are perennially rated in the nation's Top 10 by employers assessing where to hire the best new talent.

Co-op Student Participation & Earnings on the Rise
During the 2011 academic year, UC students collectively earned $43 million via the cooperative education program--up nearly $5 million from the year before. In the 10-year period 2001-11, collective co-op earnings grew more than 70% while overall participation in the program rose 30%.
Last year more than 3,000 UC students were placed in 5,632 co-op jobs with about 1,500 employers around the world. These numbers are expected to grow along with UC's enrollment and students' interest in gathering real-world experience as they achieve their degrees.
