The Office of Diversity and Inclusion announced the

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 Willie
McKether, PhD, vice president of diversity and inclusion and
vice provost at UToledo.
