UC partners with the community

September 2008

Being a good neighbor is a basic operating principle for the University of Cincinnati. "Community partnerships" mean faculty, students and staff mentor local school children, represent clients in courtrooms pro bono and monitor senior citizens' health. Plus, they build Habitat homes, supply safe blood to area hospitals and even put a 312-pound football player on a playground with an adoring 10-year-old. UC and the community easily have a thousand such connections, but here we present a few dozen examples.
