Statement on Federal Government Shutdown, October 8, 2013

The University of Cincinnati is closely monitoring the on-going budget negotiations in Washington D.C. and the continuing partial federal government shutdown.

At this time, federal funding continues for federal student aid programs and most federally-funded research projects. We continue to communicate our concerns and the importance of federal funding for our education and research mission to our congressional delegation and in coordination with our higher education associations, including the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

The Office of Governmental Relations along with the Office of Research will continue to communicate information as it becomes available regarding agency operations during this time. We hope our legislators can find a swift resolution to this current budgetary debate before it has a larger impact on the University, our students, and our researchers.
