upcoming initiatives

The Educator Diversity Scholarship (EDS) is a needs-based tuition scholarship for educators, particularly designed to assist DHS students of color entering the teaching profession; a potential pilot is being pursued with Toledo Early College (TEC) and Toledo Public Schools with three students potentially identified for the fall 2021 semester.

The College is planning for a spring 2021 virtual symposium on the importance of an antiracism curriculum foundation through children’s literature; authors and illustrators Innosanto Nagara and Cozbi Cabrera will lead a day long workshop on the importance of early reading materials in the role of creating an antiracist society; the audiences for this workshop are current teacher education students, student teachers, PK-12 educators in the field, along with invited guests.

Meet Jannet Frias

Class of 2022, special education

“I was nervous when I came to Toledo. But I feel completely at home. A summer program for multicultural students helped me make new friends. And there’s so much to do, so many organizations and diversity, it’s easy to meet people and connect. I joined a co-ed fraternity and became president of the South American and Hispanic Students’ Association. My classes were small, so it was easier to interact with my peers and develop relationships with professors.”
