Here you will find excellence in the breadth and quality of our 300 academic degree programs, and in the highly talented faculty who will help mold you into a critical thinker. Here you will find a metropolitan setting that places you in the heart of a dynamic, regional economy, and in sync with the pulse of business, government and the community. Most important, here you will discover energy, in the high-tech classrooms of our new academic buildings, in our new Student Union and Student Recreation and Wellness Center, and among the 200 student organizations on campus.
Excellence, opportunity and energy. You will find all three at The University of Akron.
The University of Akron, a publicly assisted metropolitan institution, strives to develop enlightened members of society. It offers comprehensive programs of instruction from associate through doctoral levels, pursues a vigorous agenda of research in the arts, sciences and professions, and provides service to the community. The University pursues excellence in undergraduate and graduate education and distinction in selected areas of graduate instruction, inquiry and creative activity.
We are in the heart of a dynamic regional economy that allows us to build partnerships with business and government, thus providing our graduates with vast career opportunities. As a result, many of our 107,000 alumni are in the highest echelons in business, education, law, arts, public service and health care.
Campus boundaries are one thing; the limits of our imagination are quite another. Take a walk through the neighborhoods bordering campus to the east and the south, and you'll notice a community moving forward: houses being refurbished into safe, healthy homes; a growing number of storefronts offering groceries and services to area residents, including students. And you'll notice there is more work to be done.
