The UA Dept. of Economics established an Advisory Board that held its inaugural meeting in Nov. 2008. The Board meets twice a year, its’ mission is to provide advice and guidance for the University of Akron Economics Department in the continuing development of its undergraduate and graduate programs.
The Board also serves as an advocacy group both on campus and off and will assist in promoting a positive image and good relations for the Department with the local community and state, and in relating the image of the students and faculty of the College to society at large.
The advice and counsel we have received from the Board has exceeded all expectations.
