Mission of the Senior Class Officers

The Senior Class Officers work with The University of Cincinnati Foundation to engage & educate the UC senior student body about the impact that private support has had on their educational experiences. The officers also encourage students and young alumni to provide financial support to the University’s colleges and programs along with their chosen initiative.  Every year the SCOs select a fundraising initiative to support. By taking part in this initiative, you are taking the first step in joining the long tradition of Alumni giving.
