MESSAGE FROM THE PROVOST
Provost Mike Sherman discusses how the culture at Akron is evolving to one in which academics are paramount, evidenced by organizational changes in the last year, by a shift in how academic-support units are viewed and by how the forthcoming budget proposal is being designed.
He also describes the plan to increase faculty ranks by some 200 members and how Clusters of Innovation will be formed to foster interdisciplinary research.
Akron's comprehensive implementation of the scholarship program — it is much more than financial support — has made it a model in the state.
