Guidance for military service students who must miss class
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The University is a “Veteran Friendly” institution and recognizes its obligations to our students who serve in the military. Although there is a University-level expectation that all students will attend their classes at the designated meeting times, syllabi should clearly outline specific attendance policies for each course.

For students who currently serve in the military and will miss classes for short-term military leave or for military training exercises, we recommend that they contact their instructors as soon as they become aware of this so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

In the rare case that unresolved issues arise due to absences from a course because of service in the military, we recommend that the student contact the chair of the department through which the course is offered. If the student is still not satisfied with the result, then the dean of the college and, if necessary, the Office of Academic Affairs may be contacted.

The Military Services Center is in Simmons Hall 120 and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to assist. Students are also welcome to contact the center by telephone at 330-972-7838 or by e-mail at veterans@uakron.edu for assistance with any issues encountered here at UA.

Often using the format of live business-pitch events in cities across the United States, the organization is highlighting the urban community's untapped business potential.

The morning workshops, titled How to Deliver a Winning Pitch and Creating a Business for Under $1,000, will feature individuals discussing how they launched their own companies. The afternoon will offer a panel discussion featuring the principals of LRMR and the 60-second Business Pitch Challenge. An Entrepreneurship Networking Luncheon will feature Jesse Itzler, co-founder of 100 Mile Group.
