Diversity at UT
The University of Toledo’s definition of diversity is as follows:
"Human diversity is variety in group presence and interactions. It includes, but is not limited to, age, color, ethnicity, gender, religion, disabilities, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and national origin. In promoting diversity, the University pledges to respect and value personal uniqueness and differences; to attract and retain diverse faculty, staff, and students; to challenge stereotypes; and to promote sensitivity and inclusion. The University understands the value that a diverse student body, faculty, staff, and administration bring to its educational environment, the metropolitan community and beyond. The University takes seriously its commitment to diversity as expressed in the Mission Statement and the Strategic Directions Plan."
The University of Toledo is an institution committed to diversity. As such, there are numerous offices and resources dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of the diverse community here at UT.
The College of Graduate Studies strives to recruit and retain a diverse graduate student population. COGS tracks student enrollment and, working with the academic colleges, plans to increase efforts to recruit qualified graduate students from underrepresented groups.
