Organizational Leadership

The Simpson Center for Urban Futures is housed on the third floor of the University of Cincinnati’s 1819 Innovation Hub. It provides work, research, and seminar space for faculty and students. The center also maintains a permanent archive of Orville Simpson’s work, accessible to researchers and the public. In 2011, Orville Simpson II made a generous commitment to endow a Center for Urban Futures at the University of Cincinnati. It was developed and organized by Provost Designee, Professor and Dean Emeritus, Robert Probst.
