"Learning to define problems, asking the right questions, and weighing alternative approaches must be at the heart of architectural study" ("The Boyer Report"-Building Community: A New Future for Architecture Education and Practice p. 72)

We believe that this concept applies to all disciplines, not just architecture. The Cincinnati Summer Internship Program is a six week Study Away designed for any major who has an interest in living and working in an urban environment.

The program will focus on working within the communities of Over-the-Rhine and Lower Price Hill in Cincinnati. Students will participate in weekly workshops focusing on journaling, the history, culture and civic ecology of Cincinnati and the effects of poverty on children's development and its implications on learning. Design Students will work directly with community members and organizations to facilitate design-build projects. Other students will work directly with neighborhood agencies or advocacy groups to experience urban issues first-hand.
