Congratulations to all the 2020-2021 University Honors graduates. Along your respective journeys, you’ve made tremendous contributions to so many communities—UC, Cincinnati, the country and all around the globe. You’ve continued to shape what it means to be a global citizen scholar by making a positive impact toward solving some of the world’s most complex problems. When you began your story with the University of Cincinnati, you likely considered all that the university could offer to help you get where you are today. Now that this chapter comes to a close, we congratulate you with confidence that instead it is the university and our communities nearby and afar that have benefited from you and all your efforts. We are collectively stronger than ever and ready to weather the challenges that await. We can’t wait to see what you achieve in the coming years. Lastly, while we are not able to reminisce and share in your achievements together with your families, friends, and mentors, we honor the work you’ve done with this video as one last opportunity for reflection before you take your next steps. Thank you so much. Go Bearcats!
