The future of The University of Akron Press

“The University of Akron Press has been and will continue to be a vital part of the academic core of this institution,” stated President Scott Scarborough on Aug. 17.

“As we complete its transition to University Libraries, we will take all steps necessary to make sure it maintains its well-earned reputation as a vibrant, active academic press, and to maintain its full membership in the Association of American University Presses. It will honor all existing publishing commitments, continue to seek out new, high-quality works to add to its catalog, and proudly continue to support its nationally recognized poetry series.

“After consultation with Professor Jon Miller, transitional director of The University of Akron Press and Phyllis O’Connor, interim dean of University Libraries, regarding staffing plans within University Libraries, we are re-engaging the services of the two staff members who will help ensure operations of the UA Press.”

Provost Mike Sherman also indicates that he is confident that the activities for the UA Press will link substantially to student success through experiential learning, entrepreneurial engagement and service learning.
