The University of Toledo was awarded the 2018 Governor’s Distinguished Hispanic Ohioan Award by the Ohio Latino Affairs Commission.
UT was chosen for the category of Nuestra Familia, or Our Family, which honors non-Latino individuals, organizations, and businesses making a difference through their inclusion efforts to improve the lives of Latinos and help them integrate into their communities.
“We value and embrace our wonderfully diverse campus,” UT President Sharon Gaber said. “Diversity and inclusion are important to our success. In fact, it makes us stronger every day. Our investment and growth in Latino students, faculty and staff is important to who we are as a University, and we are honored to be recognized for our commitment.”
The award will be presented to Ms. Gaber on Oct. 27 at the 38th annual Governor’s Distinguished Hispanic Ohioans Gala at Lorain Community College in Elyria.
