The University of AkronAt a regular meeting of the University's Board of Trustees, University of Akron President Luis M. Proenza announced a transition plan to complete his presidency on June 30, 2014, and take on a full-time faculty role after more than 15 years of leading the University through significant growth and transformation. The Board unanimously approved the plan and Board Chair Richard W. Pogue announced the creation of a privately endowed Chair in Higher Education and the Economy, modeled after Dr. Proenza's most important contributions to the University. The Board of Trustees agreed to lead the effort to fund the Chair with privately donated monies.

“President Proenza has created a lasting imprint on this University, the City of Akron, and the entire region,” Pogue said. “He truly defines what it means to be a transformative leader, taking this University from a commuter school to a landscape for learning that is producing new generations of innovative and entrepreneurial contributors to the region's economy and beyond. Luis has literally been the driving force behind what we call 'the energy of innovation,' that has earned national and international notice for our university.”

Proenza, who came to UA at the end of 1998, is serving the longest continuous presidency at any of Ohio's public universities. In recent years, he has discussed with Trustees a strategy for a seamless transition to new leadership and a new role that would allow him to continue to contribute to higher education and student success.
