Homecoming Gala

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. 

Each year we honor 15 outstanding graduates. We present the Gold T, Blue T and Edward H. Schmidt Outstanding Young Alum awards, as well as honor 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 Blue T is awarded in recognition of an individual's outstanding service to the UT 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 alum under the age of 40 in recognition of outstanding achievement in his or her field of endeavor.

If you were unable to join us for the Homecoming Gala in 2019, please click here to view the Gala on demand.
