25th Anniversary of The UT Urban Affairs Center

2005 marked the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Urban Affairs Center and it's membership in the Ohio Urban University Program, which also celebrated it's 25th anniversary. We are proud of what we have accomplished, and others have noted our contributions to our community.

On August 25, 2005, the work of the Center and of it's outgoing Director Dr. Patrick McGuire was recognized at a reception hosted by UT and by the UUP. President Dan Johnson, Vice Provost for Research and Economic Development Dr. Frank Calzonetti, the Toledo City Council, Mayor of Toledo Jack Ford, the Lucas County Commissioners, Dr. Mark Rosentraub of the UUP, the Ohio House of Representatives, and U.S. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur all presented UAC and Dr. McGuire their awards and their heart-felt appreciation.

Also, Interim UAC Director Dr. Neil Reid and the staff of the UAC presented Dr. McGuire with a gift signifying our sincere gratitude for all he has done for us and for the Center.

The entire staff of the UAC wish to express our sincere thanks to all who attended this event, and to all who gave commendations to the Center and to Dr. McGuire, for making this a very special day.
