Welcome to the “BirthDay” of UC’s bicentennial . . . as today the UC Board, and shortly thereafter a select team of UC “Dream Makers” will come together to begin conceptualization of what will be the biggest celebration in the long and storied history of our great university.
The year 2019 marks UC’s Bicentennial year. 200 years since our founding in 1819.
Throughout the campus, Cincinnati, Ohio, the U.S. and the world.
A year-long series of special events, communications, and ideas yet to
be born celebrating 200 years of educational achievement, leadership
and commitment to community.
Ultimately hundreds of volunteers – faculty, staff and students will join alumni and friends to organize these ideas and events. A bicentennial commission composed of alumni and friends of the university will be appointed by the president in the coming year. Joining them will be the university’s internal dream-making team.
Together they will form the bicentennial organizing group that will create and produce the bicentennial celebration.
Among the tasks of the Spirit of History Committee of the Presidential Bicentennial Commission is the production of a book that will reflect the breadth and diversity of the University of Cincinnati over its rich and eventful history. Please use this form to propose an essay for this book.
To dream … to be creative … to think of possible ideas for events, communication, marketing, timing, people, resources, fundraising and UC building opportunities that can help make UC’s bicentennial celebration the best it can be.
