Ephesus Member Inducted Into Ohio Civil Rights Hall of Fame
Story by Visitor Staff
Frank Hale Jr., PhD, explains that by fighting for students’ rights, civil rights era educators like himself were hoping to inspire them to make excellence their goal and superiority their norm.
During the induction ceremony, Hale explained that by fighting for students’ rights, civil rights activist/educators like himself were hoping to inspire them to make excellence their goal and superiority their norm.
“’Civil Rights’ are two powerful words,” Hale said. “You can’t be civil and bigoted too. Diversity is about dynamic expression of collaboration in which various groups have the opportunity to explore, to learn to appreciate and celebrate one another and to that degree they can learn to appreciate each other’s heritage and each other’s history.”
He founded the university’s Graduate and Professional Visitation Day program and the undergraduate equivalent, the Minority Scholar’s Program, in an effort to actively recruit underserved and underrepresented student groups. During Hale’s tenure at OSU, the university became the number one producer of Black PhD students. He has served on many national boards, including the United Negro College Fund, the Ohio Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission and the Seventh-day Adventist Commission on Higher Education. He is the author of 11 books and has been published in more than 50 professional journals.
Frank Hale Jr., PhD, was among 10 civil rights pioneers recently inducted into the Ohio Civil Rights Hall of Fame.
