BEARchats Conversation Partners Program

The University of Cincinnati's BEARchats Conversation Partner Program creates cross-cultural friendships and enhances student understanding of the University of Cincinnati's diverse student body.

As the University of Cincinnati becomes an increasingly global university, these cultural exchanges will form a foundation of cultural diversity and awareness for our students as they leave the university to take on the world. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Vamshi Kore at


Major changes are coming to BEARchats for the 2016-2017 Academic Year. If you are an interested student, Spring 2017 applications have officially gone live! Accepted applicants will have access to events and group activities to be hosted and facilitated by the Office of Ethnic Programs and Services.
