The MCUC is built upon a foundation of partnerships. The Center has emerged from the collaborative efforts of representatives from The University of Akron as well as local residents, businesses, community organizations and government institutions who have participated on the original Medina County University Center Task Force and, more recently, the Medina County University Center Steering Committee.
This spirit of partnership will be carried forward into the operation of the MCUC in that The University of Akron intends to negotiate strategic relationships with a variety of educational institutions and professional associations for the delivery of relevant academic and workforce development programs.
In 2009, MCUC created the Strategic Advisory Council (SAC) consisting of Medina County community leaders, business representatives and educators that provides input about strategic initiatives enhancing the services and programmatic offerings at MCUC.
