Slippery sidewalks on campus
Feed My Starving Children Program

TOLEDO, Ohio - Several weeks ago, it was brought to UT:10 News' attention that there have been issues with disabled students getting around campus effectively.
Slippery walkways have been posing an issue around campus for those with disabilities, leaving many to wonder if the grounds crew is able to do its job effectively.
Senior Associate Vice President for Facilities and Construction Jason Toth says he believes this is just an anomaly that occurred because of the weather.
When asked if he believed his department was understaffed, Toth said no. But UT Advisor Lisa Bollman, who has mobility issues, says they are.
Her office at Sullivan Hall is an especially slippery area, because it is not as well traveled as other areas of the University.
While Toth says he is satisfied with his team's efficiency, he also says that the extreme weather, such as the frigid temperatures we experienced recently, have made it difficult for the treatment placed on the walkways to melt the ice.
“Given the extreme cold that we had, it rendered that brine solution to be effective. When you get around minus ten- or ten degrees, you no longer have the effective nature of the rock salt to get rid of the snow that occurs on our sidewalks, or the ice that occurs on our sidewalks.”
Student Disability Services says there have been no reports of incidents, when it comes to walkways being inaccessible due to ice.
Bollman and Toth both encourage students to be cautious on the ice and walk slowly.
If you do see a disabled student struggling to get through an icy spot - do not be afraid to ask them if they need help.
Students that would like to report an untreated walkway may call 419-530-1000 for Main Campus - and 419-383-5353 for the Health Science Campus.

TOLEDO, Ohio - UT students and faculty partnered with the Toledo community on Feb. 1 and 2 to help feed the world’s starving children.
Over one thousand volunteers filled the gym at the Health Education Center on Main Campus to pack meals for third-world countries.
Professor Clint Longenecker, distinguished professor and director of the Center of Leadership and Organizational Excellence in the College of Business and Innovation said that volunteers had to be placed on a waiting list because so many signed up.
Ninety students from the Klar Leadership Academy at the College of Business and Innovation raised $45 thousand to purchase food from the, “Feed My Starving Children” program for the two-day mobile pack.
The academy was founded in 2015 by Steven Klar, 1971 UT business alumnus and New York City real estate developer.
“We did this on behalf of the “Feed my Starving Children” organization, and they distribute the food from these mobile pack events to, uh, whatever country that needs them,” said Jason Gonring, fourth year Electrical Engineering student.
Packing shifts were two hours long, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
The meals contained a nutritious rice and vegetable blend, prepared specifically for undernourished children.
This is the third year in a row that the Klar Leadership Academy organized the mobile pack. In 2017, volunteers packed 140 thousand meals, in 2018 they packed 173 thousand, and this year, they packed over 202 thousand meals.
Longenecker said that the academy’s goals are just to improve every year by recruiting more volunteers and packing more meals.
