FAREWELL to 2020

Message From The President

Dear UC Community,

2020 is a year that most of us are eager to put behind us and try to forget. Yet, to borrow from the words of Charles Dickens, the pandemic revealed to us both the worst and the best. It challenged us in ways we never imagined, spiraling us through the darkest shadows and the most brilliant light. Health professionals faced into the most trying conditions with an unflinching sense of duty and compassion. All around us, humanity found ways to overcome, to connect in new and different ways, to help one another, to stand together for racial reckoning. Never giving up. Always pushing forward. Here at the University of Cincinnati we have, too. Let’s honor what lies ahead – not by trying to forget what happened, but instead by remembering and learning from it, and keeping our students facing toward the future.

Wishing you the best in 2021!

Neville G. Pinto
