COVID-19 Temporary Program Changes — Fall 2020

First off, I hope that you and your families are all safe and healthy. Nothing is more important. Beyond that, I hope that the transition back to campus is going smoothly... or at least as smoothly as can be hoped. This is a time of unprecedented uncertainty, and I want to assure you that we will all work together to find solutions to whatever issues arise.

This page is designed to provide a central location that students and families can use to find out the changes that we are making here in the Williams Honors College to our curriculum and program. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reach out to any of us:

D. Dane Quinn, Acting Dean (quinn@uakron.edu)
Peggy Walchalk, Administrative Assistant Sr. (peggy1@uakron.edu)
Sarah Psihountakis, Associate Director of Admissions (sas107@uakron.edu)
