Urban Impact

The University of Cincinnati's well-being is inherently linked with the physical, environmental, social, and economic health of our community and city. Cincinnati, and its business, civic, education, and cultural offerings, provides us an opportunity to reach beyond our campuses to lead real-world learning, problem-based research and scholarship, and creative endeavors that address the multifaceted challenges affecting individuals and communities in our increasingly urbanized society.

Urban Impact, through collaborations and partnerships with external counterparts, seeks to improve the human condition and advance sustainability for the institution, city, state, and world.
