The University of Cincinnati as a community is dedicated to learning and scholarship, and to creating an environment where freedom of inquiry and discourse may occur in a climate of inclusiveness and civility. Through experiential education and research, we will build rigorous learning experiences that will integrate theory and practice, produce a sense of contextual complexity and community engagement, and create learning that is exceptionally self-directed, integrative and transformational.
A university must be more than a repository of information or a conduit for transmitting information. A university must be a place where knowledge is created, where research, creativity and scholarship produce new ways of understanding and changing the world. Innovation and entrepreneurship are necessary for stimulating new ideas and for taking our research into the public domain. The university will pursue public and private support for innovation initiatives, and focus resources through an infrastructure designed to support innovation.
The University of Cincinnati will realize its global influence through a genuinely international awareness and experience. We will identify, develop and integrate the knowledge and skills that each person needs in order to live successfully within our world-wide community and to contribute to human advancement in meaningful ways. Our students will understand and be able to succeed throughout the ever-evolving modern world.
