Frank W. Hale

Civil Rights leader and former Ohio State University vice provost, Frank Hale died today at 84 years old. We owe a lot to him as he pioneered higher education access both at OSU and nationally.

He founded the Graduate and Professional Schools Visitation Days program for POCs interested in attending OSU, through which $15 million in graduate fellowship awards were awarded to approximately 1,200 minority students to earn their masters and/or doctoral degrees. Last year he was inducted into the Ohio Civil Right Hall of Fame and OSU's Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center in named in his honor.

Thank you.
