The University Women's Commission provides a support system for all women and serves as a network of alliances for all women on The University of Toledo campuses.

It is our goal to improve the status of women at UT by furnishing them with role models and mentors, increasing their visibility within the university community, and providing them with support for educational and professional endeavors.

The UWC has had a presence on campus since the mid-1970s, and was formally established in 1981 in the interest of offering women a forum for providing and obtaining assistance in career advancement and serving as a locale where women could meet to discuss and share information on issues and concerns of common interest.

The UWC achievements include:

  • Established the Apple Tree childcare facilities
  • Recognized 155 Outstanding UT Women
  • Established professional stipend awards in 2005
