Homecoming Gala

Sept. 29, 2023  |  6 - 9 p.m.

The University of Toledo Alumni Association's annual Homecoming Gala is a chance for us to thank and honor our alumni who make an impact every day in communities across the country and the world.

Meet the 2023 Distinguished Alumni Awardees

Each year, we present the Gold T, Daniel J. Saevig Blue T and Edward H. Schmidt Outstanding Young Alum awards, as well as honored distinguished graduates from each of UToledo's 12 colleges.

The Gold T is awarded to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to his or her field of endeavor and has been of service to the University, community or nation. The Daniel J. Saevig Blue T is awarded in recognition of an individual's outstanding service to the UToledo Alumni Association and the University through committee and community involvement.

In memory of Edward H. Schmidt, the Outstanding Young Alum Award is presented to an alumnus under the age of 40 in recognition of outstanding achievement in his or her field of endeavor.
