Offices temporarily moved to Polsky

A broken AC and extreme heat at Central Hower Community School has resulted in College of Education offices being temporarily relocated to the 5th floor of Polsky.

The Offices of Student Services, Student Teaching, Licensure, Tech Support, and all administrators can be located in Room 520.

All phone numbers remain the same and are in service.  Our main number is (330) 972-7750.

This City Reads! aims for world record


Approximately 215 people took part in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the largest greeting-card exchange when they got together for This City Reads!  Unfortunately, they fell short by just a few people, but all who took part, especially the children, had fun writing in their greeting card and exchanging it.

The event was all part of This City Reads! Night, which was held during the Akron RubberDucks game Wednesday versus the Erie SeaWolves at Canal Park.

This City Reads! is a Summit County initiative formed by the University of Akron Center for Literacy, Akron-Summit County Public Library, and the Summit Education Initiative with the goal of improving literacy skills for all residents of the Summit County.  Full Story
