In recognition of Diversity Month, The University of Toledo is engaging the campus community throughout April with campus events and other opportunities to learn more about our different cultures and traditions and to further our mutual respect and empathy.
Among the calendar of activities: Spring Chinese Culture Night from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium as part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month; “Pledge to End Antisemitism” from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, in Centennial Mall as part of Jewish Heritage Month; and the 28th Take Back the Night event from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 2, in the Thompson Student Union Ingman Room.

In addition to the planned campus activities, the University invites students, faculty and staff to recognize diversity and create a deeper understanding of different cultures, traditions and backgrounds through their own independent activities, including:
• Watching a multicultural movie;
• Supporting a minority-owned business;
• Trying a new cuisine;
• Listening to cultural music; and
• Having a conversation with someone from a different background.
UToledo 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.
