UToledo President — Dr. Gregory Postel

Welcome, Rockets!
We are excited to start the 2022-23 academic year and I want to wish each of you a successful fall semester.
It is a great time to be a Rocket as we celebrate UToledo’s sesquicentennial. We have been fueling tomorrows for the past 150 years, and we’re just getting started!
The excellent public research university with a strong academic medical center that you know today was established on Oct. 12, 1872, as the Toledo University of Arts and Trades. We have evolved through the years to become a municipal institution in 1884, then a state university in 1967 and in 2006 UToledo merged with the Medical University of Ohio. Today, The University of Toledo has more than 168,000 proud alumni around the world helping to fulfill our mission of improving the human condition.
We look forward to celebrating our history with you throughout this academic year, including a special commemorative Founder’s Day celebration on Oct. 12, 2022, with live concerts and fireworks. More details will be shared as that event gets closer. Be sure to take advantage of the Welcome Weeks activities, too. Please say hi when you see me at the Sundae on a Monday event later today, 1-3 p.m. in Centennial Mall, and at the pep rally and Student Involvement Fair on Wednesday.
If there is anything that we can do to support you this year, please do not hesitate to reach out to your success coach, advisor, faculty or any member of our UToledo team. We are all committed to your success!
This year is an important opportunity to celebrate our history and plan for our future. I am glad you’re here as part of Rocket Nation.
Go Rockets!

Gregory Postel, M.D.
