“The event was a reception to introduce all students, “said Rev. James Willis of St. Paul MBC who serves on the Committee. “And for new students to gain insight on issues that may arise that second, third and fourth year students have already encountered.”

Approximately 45 students attended the reception to mingle and to hear speakers such as Willis; Toledo Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson Dean; Pat Hogue, PhD, associate dean of Diversity and Inclusion and Monica Holiday-Goodman, PhD, associate dean for Health Science Campus Student Affairs and Diversity.

The Committee for African American Recruitment derives from UT’s program to fulfill the part of its mission statement that in which the university will seek to “create an environment that values and fosters Diversity.”
