President Ono’s Statement on Meeting with City Manager’s Advisory Group
As announced last week following the officer-involved shooting off campus, UC's President and several members of the university leadership team met with the City Manager's Advisory Group.
"This morning, several senior leaders of the University of Cincinnati met with members of the City Manager's Advisory Group to hear their thoughts and perspectives about how best to move forward together in a spirit of cooperation and collaboration. As the result of multiple conversations this past week with community leaders, which were reiterated this morning, the university is initiating a process to hire an independent external reviewer to examine UC Police Department policies, procedures and practices. We also are moving forward with the creation of a community advisory panel. These are important steps to create an enhanced environment of openness and healing."
