Meet the Dean
On behalf of our students, faculty, staff and more than 24,000 alumni, welcome to UC Blue Ash College!
With access to an internationally recognized University of Cincinnati education, an unwavering commitment to inspiring student success, and tuition that is half of most other colleges and universities, we are proud to offer one of the best values in higher education.
I am especially excited about all of the momentum at our college. Below are just a few reasons why this is a great time to be a part of the UC Blue Ash College family:
- We offer 50 academic degree programs, including bachelor's degrees, and we're constantly looking to expand our offerings to meet the needs of our students and the communities we serve.
- Our students have more opportunities than ever before to grow beyond the classroom. Our study abroad program offers the life-changing experience of learning and experiencing a new culture in countries all over the world' Australia, Costa Rica, England and Spain are recent destinations. We also offer service learning, internships and a wide range of student organizations on our campus.
- We have amazing faculty members who are leaders in their field and innovators in the classroom. I am proud to note that our faculty includes Fulbright Scholars, A Nobel Institute Fellow, and more than a dozen members of the UC Academy of Fellows for Teaching and Learning.
- We are expanding and updating our campus to refresh old spaces and balance recent growth in our enrollment with our commitment to small class sizes (average of 19 students per class). We opened Progress Hall in 2017 and we are working on major renovations to Muntz Hall that will transform our flagship building.
While I enjoy sharing these new developments, I want to emphasize that none of this changes our mission to support and inspire our students. Everything we do at UC Blue Ash College is designed to help our students succeed academically, personally and professionally.
Thank you for visiting our website; If you haven't been here before, I hope you also have the opportunity to visit our beautiful, 135-acre campus located in the heart of the City of Blue Ash. You will be glad to you did!
