University of Cincinnati

From Academic Kids

Template:Infobox American Universities The University of Cincinnati is located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 1819, Cincinnati College and the Medical College of Ohio were founded in Cincinnati upon the suggestion and with the funds of local benefactors like Dr. Drake and William Lytle of the Lytle family of Cincinnati. In 1870, the City of Cincinnati established the University of Cincinnati, absorbing Cincinnati College and the Medical College of Ohio. University of Cincinnati became a "municipally-sponsored, state-affiliated" institution in 1968. During this time, the University of Cincinnati was the second-oldest and second-largest municipal university in the country. It became one of Ohio's state universities in 1977.

It now has an annual enrollment of approximately 35,000 full- and part-time students in programs ranging from 2-year Associate's Degrees to Ph.D. and post-doctorate education.

The school's sports teams are known as Bearcats. Cincinnati competes in NCAA Division I sports (I-A for football) as a member of Conference USA, but will move to the Big East Conference in fall 2005. The school's best-known athletic alumni are Baseball Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax and all-time basketball great Oscar Robertson. Entertainer Nick Lachey is reportedly an extremely passionate fan of the Bearcats.

The College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning (http://daap.uc.edu) (also known as DAAP) is one of the most highly-ranked design schools in the United States. For 2004, the undergraduate architecture program was ranked second in the nation, and the interior design program was ranked first in the nation in the annual survey of professionals conducted by DesignIntelligence (http://www.di.net).

UC is also distinguished by the fact that it is the birthplace of the co-operative (co-op) education model. The program generally consists of alternating periods of coursework on campus and outside work at a host firm, giving students up to two years of relevant work experience by the time they graduate. The concept was invented at UC in 1906 by Herman Schneider, Dean of the College of Engineering at the time. Today, UC's Professional Practice (Co-op) Program is the largest co-op program at any public institution in the United States.
