In Service to the City: A History of the University of Cincinnati illustrates the University of Cincinnati’s evolution into a state institution still deeply rooted in the city’s psyche. Stradling recounts the university’s transformation, pausing at each significant step, and provides a window onto changes within the university, the city of Cincinnati, and higher education in the United States altogether. As Stradling ends his story, readers are encouraged to consider how the University of Cincinnati can strive to find a balance between its local urban heritage and its aspirations as a state-owned research university aiming for a global profile. In Service to the City allows both those connected to the university and those reading about it for the first time to ponder how the University of Cincinnati can navigate a future as a university so strongly connected to its birth city.
