“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.
Committee for African American Recruitment derives from UT’s

which the university will seek to “create an environment
that values and fosters Diversity.”
