The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion requests nominations for the second cohort of Inclusive Wall of Honor awardees.
The Inclusive Wall of Honor pays tribute to and highlights the contributions underrepresented minorities, individuals with disabilities and members of the LGBTQA+ community have made as faculty, staff, administrators and alumni of The University of Toledo.
“We want to continue our mission of increasing diverse representation while fostering a community in which everyone has a sense of belonging,” said Malaika Bell, interim executive director of diversity, equity and inclusion at UToledo. “The ability to see representations of our identities on campus walls increases this possibility.”
Prior to the Inclusive Wall of Honor’s installation, ODEI is calling for nominations of the incoming class of inductees for 2022 until Friday, April 1. The nomination form is available here.
Criteria for nomination:
• Nominees must be an Underrepresented Minority (URM), a person with a disability or a member of the LGBTQA+ community.
• Any faculty, staff or administrator who made significant contributions while employed at the University and has demonstrated good citizenship since leaving the University is eligible to be nominated. These nominees must have been separated from the university for at least two years to be eligible for nomination — this includes individuals who left the University on favorable terms through resignation, retirement or are deceased.
• Alumni who have been graduated from UToledo for at least five years, have made significant contributions to the community and have demonstrated good citizenship are eligible for nomination. Nominated alumni may be living or deceased.
• Nominations should be supported with as much historical data as possible (newspaper clippings, statistics, etc.). This is important since the nomination, and supporting documentation, will be the only means for the committee to select awardees.
