The Office of Diversity and Inclusion announced the Inclusive Wall of Honor to be installed on the third floor of University Hall.

The Inclusive Wall of Honor will honor and highlight the contributions underrepresented minorities, individuals with disabilities and members of the LGBTQA+ community have made as faculty, staff, administrators and alumni of The University of Toledo.

“I hope it will instill a sense of pride for current students and hopefully inspire them to become their best selves, whatever that means to each student,” said Dr. Willie McKether, vice president of diversity and inclusion and vice provost at UToledo.

Prior to the Inclusive Wall of Honor’s installation, ODI is calling for nominations of the incoming class of inductees for 2020. The nomination form is available on the Office of Diversity and Inclusion website.

Criteria for nomination:

  • Nominees must be an Underrepresented Minority (URM), a person with a disability or a member of the LGBTQA+ community.
  • Alumni who have been graduated from UToledo for at least five years, have made significant contributions to the community and have demonstrated good citizenship are eligible for nomination. Nominated alumni may be living or deceased.
  • Any faculty, staff or administrator who made significant contributions while employed at the University and has demonstrated good citizenship since leaving the University is eligible to be nominated. These nominees must have been separated from the university for at least two years in order to be eligible for nomination. This includes individuals who left the University on favorable terms through resignation, retirement or are deceased.
  • Nominations should be supported with as much historical data as possible (newspaper clippings, statistics, etc.).
