Through time and space, a family grounded in education

July 11, 2022

It was typical for Tom Davis, ’83 CEAS, during his teenage years, to find guests at the dinner table. He often dined with students that his parents had met through their work at the University of Cincinnati. Tom’s father, R.T. Davis, was the chair of aerospace engineering at the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science in the 1970s. His mother, Barbara Davis, tutored students at the former University College. He remembers his mother meeting student-athletes for additional early-morning tutoring sessions and his father mentoring engineering students. Their kindness and focus on helping others have served as a life compass for Tom and his wife, Gloria Davis.

Through a gift from longtime supporters Dan Kautz and Woodrow (Woody) Uible, the University of Cincinnati will launch two new programs studying cryptocurrency and new financial technologies. The gifts will create an educational program with the Carl H. Lindner College of Business for UC students and name a public-private lab space within the new Digital Futures building, set to open in fall 2022. Dan Kautz is co-founder and co-owner of K&S Companies, a real estate development and management organization. Through his partnership with UC economics alumnus Woody Uible, BA ‘75, a principal at Bartlett Wealth Management and UC Foundation trustee, the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute was created at Lindner in 2019. “Through the Kautz family and their outstanding named institute, Dan and Woody have long been forward-thinking and generous friends to our university,” said UC President Neville G. Pinto. “We are deeply grateful for their ongoing partnership and this new lab that will open more doors for our students and bring new partnerships across our growing campus.”
