The University of Cincinnati is an R1 institution, based on the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education used for more than four decades. 

That means UC is engaged in research at the highest level in the United States—and we only do that because of our researchers.  

That’s why we celebrated them, and their hard work, at the Sponsored Research reception held on Jan. 29. Our three and four-time winners got a shout out in January but here are some photos from the event. Thanks to all who came!
