We are a comprehensive research university that strives to have an even greater impact—from books and publications, to the classroom, to patient care and disease breakthroughs, to product development and beyond.
We aspire to be a campus community without barriers and silos among faculty, staff and students. We seek to build a holistic local and global community that aspires to exchange ideas among all of its people, and in every sense. We must support one another and talk about difficult things. We must be intentional. We must serve as an anchor institution to our surrounding neighborhoods and region, and be a congealing place in University Circle and in Cleveland.
