City of Akron Press Release
Published: 05-31-2016

Akron, Ohio, May 31, 2016 – Mayor Dan Horrigan released a statement today regarding change at The University of Akron.

“Today’s announcement provides an opportunity to move beyond a difficult period in the history of our university – although many challenges still remain.  I urge the Board of Trustees to fully engage faculty, students, alumni and community stakeholders in an open dialogue regarding the type of leader our university needs.

Greater Akron’s economy requires a strong, growing University of Akron focused on expanding research activities and student success.   The University is an indispensable partner for our city and our region. As we continue to compete in a knowledge-based economy, we need the innovation and creativity The University of Akron has always produced.

Our community must now come together and lend our best efforts to ensure a successful search for a new president.

I would like to thank Dr. Scarborough for his service and commend him for making tough decisions during his tenure. I wish Dr. Scarborough and his family well and offer him the best in his future endeavors.”
