The UT President's Commission on the River was established in 2005 to focus on efforts to improve the Ottawa River on the main campus including beautification, access, environmental improvements, community engagement, research, student involvement and public awareness. The Commission has representatives from faculty, staff, students and members of the local community. Recent and ongoing projects and activities include habitat improvements, placement of river overlooks that include benches, addressing storm water with rain gardens and other methods, an annual Celebrate Our River Week, participation in the Clean Your Streams event, involvement in community meetings and efforts for the Ottawa River, and regular outreach and communication via a webpage and Facebook. This collection contains the reports and other records created by the President's Commission on the River and contributed to the University of Toledo Digital Library in 2014.
