UC’s Office of Institutional Research reports that over summer and fall, 2,613 students applied for graduation, up more than 200 over the same period last year. Their total degrees include:
At December Commencement, the university will present an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters to H.C. Buck Niehoff, a 1972 graduate of the UC College of Law. For decades, he has led efforts in advising and supporting the university.
Four educators from around the Tristate will be honored with the university’s Cincinnati USA Outstanding Educator Award. The educators were nominated by soon-to-graduate UC students who wanted to honor a K-12 educator who had a lasting impact on the students’ pursuit of a college degree.
Each of the award recipients will be presented with a $1,000 UC scholarship to be awarded to a high school senior who plans to attend UC in the 2012-2013 academic year.
In another unique addition to December’s ceremony, the national anthem will be sung by the University of Cincinnati Cabaret Singers under the direction of Sean Taylor. The performance will celebrate the World Choir Games that are coming to Cincinnati July 4-14.Immediately following the Commencement ceremony, the UC Alumni Association will host a reception for all graduates and guests at the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center.
