Document envisions UT highly ranked nationally

A tug of words about the University of Toledo s post-merger identity resulted in a 12-page plan yesterday that envisions a comprehensive institution with profound strengths in science and technology.

The document broadens the language of an earlier proposal by UT President Lloyd Jacobs, who ran the Medical University of Ohio before the two schools merged in July.

In October, Dr. Jacobs presented an initial strategic proposal to a committee of administrators, professors, students, trustees, and community leaders. That rough draft promoted a narrower, deeper UT more oriented toward science and technology.

Released yesterday, the committee s revision calls for UT s academic programs to be highly ranked nationally and for graduate programs that achieve economic self-sufficiency.

The revised document will be presented this month to the UT board of trustees.
