President’s address to focus on societal changes, role of higher education


Much has changed in the United States’ economy since Dr. Lloyd Jacobs took the stage for his first address to the community as president of The University of Toledo.

Now UT’s 16th president will in his seventh annual address focus on the role of higher education in this time of an evaporating middle class.

In “The American Dream and the Cloud University,” Jacobs will set a vision for the future of The University of Toledo, shaped by the evolving needs of students, patients and the community. The address will take place 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 19 in the newly renovated Henry J. Doermann Theater in University Hall on the UT Main Campus.

“One of the critical pieces of the long-term strategy is partnerships,” Jacobs said. “How these partnerships will ultimately help us live our mission, but also better focus on our most important deliverables: a quality education and a quality clinical experience.”

Parking will be available in the grassy area across from University Hall, with access from Goddard Road. Golf carts will be available for those who need assistance walking from the area.
