Toledo, University of

      public, coeducational institution of higher learning in Toledo, Ohio, U.S. It offers more than 1,000 undergraduate and more than 100 graduate degree programs through colleges of arts and sciences, business administration, education and allied professions, engineering, and pharmacy and through the University Community and Technical College, graduate school, and college of law. The main campus is in west Toledo; in addition there are the Scott Park campus—which houses the University Community and Technical College—and academic facilities at SeaGate Center and the Toledo Museum of Art. The university also provides a joint-study program with Bowling Green State University. Research is conducted at the Polymer Institute, the Eitel Institute for Silicate Research, and the Ritter Astrophysical Research Center.

      The Toledo University of Arts and Trades was founded in 1872 on the current Scott Park campus on lands donated by Jesup W. Scott, a citizen of Toledo. It was a municipal university from 1883 until 1967, when it began receiving state support. Pharmacy and law were added to the curriculum in the first decade of the 20th century, when the university became affiliated with Toledo Medical College and the Toledo YMCA College of Law. The university experienced marked growth beginning in 1928 with the creation of the campus in west Toledo. In 2006 the University of Toledo merged with the Medical University of Ohio; the latter was renamed the University of Toledo Health Science Campus.
