"On behalf of the entire University of Cincinnati community and its Board of Trustees, I want to extend our deepest condolences to the family of Neil Armstrong. Our nation and indeed the entire globe has lost a courageous and unassuming hero who served humankind in a way that captivated our imagination and served as an inspiration for generations of scientists and explorers. Our University of Cincinnati community is truly saddened by his loss. We are very honored that he chose to serve on the engineering faculty at UC for many years. In the weeks ahead, the University will seek to appropriately memorialize his unrivaled contributions to humankind and his distinguished faculty career that spanned 10 years at UC."
