UC Young Professionals (UCYP)

Where recently graduated Bearcats come together to:

  • Network through unique opportunities to leverage professional relationships with other Bearcats.
  • Grow Professionally by attending and planning experiences that focus on career growth, professional development, and continuing education.
  • Socialize at fun, casual events designed to bring recent graduates together.
  • Make a Difference when you participate in volunteer activities and philanthropy that support UC scholarships, student success, and impact the Cincinnati community.
