UC kicked off its Bicentennial year with a reception on Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the UC College of Medicine. This event coincided with UC’s Charter Week, honoring the signing of the charters that founded the Medical College of Ohio on Jan. 19, 1819 and Cincinnati College on Jan. 22, 1819. UC is the 18th oldest public institution in the United States.
The kickoff celebration included the announcement of the Bicentennial Community Engagement Grant recipients, a “University of Cincinnati Bicentennial Day” proclamation from Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley and the unveiling of UC’s Virtual Reality Experience. Five virtual reality vignettes, designed by the UC Center for Simulations & Virtual Environments Research, faculty, staff and students, allow participants to experience historical moments on UC’s campus. The Virtual Reality Booth Design and Coordination was directed by UC Planning + Design + Construction with participation from students of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. UC College of Nursing was presented with an Apple Distinguished School Award.
UC President Neville Pinto; UC College of Medicine Interim Dean Andrew Filak Jr., MD; UC College of Nursing Dean Greer Glazer, PhD; and UC trustees, faculty, students, staff and friends attended the reception marking this historic milestone. The theme of UC’s Bicentennial is Boldly Bearcat, capturing the tenacity, drive, determination and grit that characterize UC and its community.
“This Bicentennial Celebration will honor our university’s rich past, elevate its dynamic present and look forward with great anticipation to its innovative impact over the next 200 years. It's time to show the world that Next Lives Here at the University of Cincinnati.”
UC President Neville Pinto

CINCINNATI—Stay curious. Remain humble. Never forget that wearing the White Coat is a privilege. A wise sage offered this advice to new medical students during the 24th annual White Coat Ceremony held by the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine Aug. 9 at Aronoff Center in downtown Cincinnati. “I highly recommend pursuing what makes you curious,” said Tiffiny Diers, MD, associate professor in the Department of Internal Medicine. “Whether it is in what you are studying, in a patient story or career opportunities that come your way, curiosity and exploration yield discovery.” “The expansion of your own knowledge, what you can bring to your patients, and ultimately to our field, these are also antidotes to burnout in a challenging profession helping you to maintain a sense of meaning and engagement in your work,” said Diers. Diers, associate program director for the UC Internal Medicine Residency Program and a UC Health physician, offered the keynote address at the White Coat Ceremony. Her message was aimed at one of UC’s largest medical classes in recent years, and the most racially and ethnically diverse ever. The College of Medicine welcomed 185 newly admitted medical students during the ceremony. Each member of the class of 2023 was presented with a white coat symbolizing entry into the medical profession. UC College of Medicine alumni, faculty and staff provided the coats as a gift. The white coat is also a symbol of the patients the students will treat and the compassion, honesty and caring to which the students should always aspire. College of Medicine Interim Dean Andrew Filak Jr., MD, and UC President Neville Pinto also offered welcoming remarks to the class. “President Pinto has dubbed the university’s strategic direction ‘Next Lives Here’,” explained Filak. “Powered by knowledge, ideas and minds, Next Lives Here amplifies our core missions of teaching, research and service—from preparing faculty to teach tomorrow to pioneering the next cure to solving human-centered problems in the far corners of the globe. It is a culture that is owned, not rented and it is changing the way we live, work and learn. You are what is ‘Next’ for the College of Medicine. Our next class, our next generation of physicians, our next medical leaders who will impact the world.”
