UC is an R1 research institution, a designation that places us among the nation’s leading universities in research and innovation. That reputation is part of what attracts a diverse array of not just students, but talented faculty. 

UC researchers drive significant economic impact in the region, supporting nearly 5,000 jobs, according to an independent report on the influence of Ohio’s public universities. UC and its affiliates invested a record $615 million into research spending in 2022, demonstrating a serious commitment to discovery and innovation.

Students know that at Lindner — and, by extension, UC — they can work alongside leading researchers and make their mark.
