The University of Toledo is continuing its Dialogues on Diversity series with the next virtual town hall, “The Path Forward — The Constitution and the Fragility of Democracy,” taking place at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, on Webex.

“We are quite fortunate to have such distinguished scholars here at the University who are able to help us better understand the constitutional questions and concerns raised by the events of Jan. 6,” said Charlene Gilbert, dean of the UToledo College of Arts and Letters. “Higher education has an important role to play in defending our institutions and our modern democracy. I look forward to hearing the expert insights of our panelists and to an inclusive and informative discussion.”

Gilbert will moderate the discussion with participants including:

•  Jeff Newton, UToledo Police chief and director of public safety;

•  Dr. Sam Nelson, associate professor and chair of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration;

•  D. Benjamin Barros, dean of the College of Law;

•  Benjamin Davis, professor of law; and

•  Dr. Monita Mungo, assistant professor of sociology.

This is the 10th town hall in the series of recent virtual Dialogues on Diversity since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis by a police officer, sparking protests against systemic racism across the country.

The University of Toledo is a community that celebrates and respects people of all backgrounds and experiences. As an institution, we remain committed to building an inclusive environment free of racism, sexism, bigotry and other negative influences.
