Academic Program Review results

Aug. 15, 2018

Today, the Board of Trustees approved recommendations from Academic Program Review, a faculty-led, year-long process to evaluate every degree and degree track we offer.

The review will allow us to increase resources in degree programs of greatest interest, opportunity and benefit to students. New degrees will be created, many will receive investment or continue as is, and some will be phased out.

Pie chart showing that 81 percent of UA's degrees or tracks will continue or receive increased investment.

About 81 percent of our degrees and degree tracks will be expanded or go unchanged.

Areas of investment

The University of Akron is investing in some key areas of strength and opportunity, consistent with the results of Academic Program Review.

The 32 full-time hires include twenty-three (23) tenure track faculty, eight (8) non-tenure track faculty and one contract professional to replace visiting faculty positions or to add depth and breadth to the University. The goal is to fill the positions for the fall 2019 semester. Ten (10) of these positions will be joint appointments in other UA colleges/schools to foster greater interdisciplinary collaborations.
