About Us

History of CES

The Center for Exploratory Studies (CES) was established at the University of Cincinnati (UC) in February 2003 to assist all UC undergraduate students with the major selection process in an effort to promote student retention.  While administratively housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, CES serves as a university-wide advising center.  Originally, CES advisors focused primarily on major selection and transition.  As the effectiveness of the center became well established in terms of student retention and satisfaction, additional advisors were added to serve the growing exploratory student population.  Today, advisors in CES comprehensively assist students with curricular planning as well as the time-intensive major selection process.  Currently, the Center serves more than 1,700 UC undergraduate students.
