UToledo’s response to restart Ohio Higher Education Plan

July 9, 2020: The University of Toledo has been working closely with Governor Mike DeWine, the Ohio Health Department, the Lucas County Health Department and the Inter-University Council of Ohio’s public universities as we have navigated this pandemic. 

“We are grateful for the outstanding leadership, collaboration and support of Governor DeWine and other state officials as we have rapidly responded to this health crisis,” said Dr. Gregory Postel, interim president. “The guidance in the Restart Ohio Education Plan released today provides affirmation of our work to-date on the Rocket Restart plan.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic financial impact on all of higher education, and UToledo is no exception. We have taken significant measures at great cost to promote the health and safety of our entire campus community. The additional funding made available to Ohio’s public higher education institutions through the CARES Act will assist with the enormous financial challenge associated with these changes. 

There is no perfect response plan for the COVID-19 pandemic, but with the guidance offered in today’s plan, in concert with our Rocket Restart efforts, we will continue to address the challenges associated with the uncertainty of the coronavirus.

“The only certainty in this environment is our commitment to offering a world-class education for our students,” Postel said. “We appreciate that Governor DeWine shares this commitment to our students.”

UToledo reaffirms support for International Students

The University of Toledo today issued the following statement on the new U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement guidance regarding international students:

The University of Toledo has devoted significant resources over the past months to plan for and promote a safe return to campus for fall semester.

We appreciate these are difficult, uncertain times and we have done our best to provide clarity and assurances for all of our students. Unfortunately, the guidance issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement regarding international students has created additional uncertainty for our international students.

UToledo is fully committed to providing on-campus instruction for our students this fall, alongside remote and online instruction modalities. This flexible approach to learning fulfills the new requirements for our international students.

While our Rocket Restart plans are subject to change based on the pandemic’s spread and the guidance from local, state and federal public health experts, as well as our own health and safety experts, we understand the importance of an uninterrupted educational experience. UToledo is currently making plans to ensure that no student would be impacted mid-semester by these new federal guidelines.

A diverse student body is a core value of UToledo. Every year, we welcome hundreds of international students from around the world into our Rocket family. Any policy that makes it more difficult for bright young minds to complete their education at UToledo is concerning. As always, we continue to monitor the potential impact of immigration laws, policies and practices on our campus community and pledge to offer our international students our full support now and always.
