A slew of changes are happening at the University of Akron. A total of 80 degree programs will be phased out due to declining enrollment and the changing college environment.
What will this mean for the students and faculty? Dr. John Green, interim president of the University of Akron, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to touch on the changes. One of the big questions surrounding the cuts are if jobs will be lost, but that is not the case. Green says the faculty members will only shift their job titles and will remain employed.
The majority of the cuts are master’s and bachelor’s programs. Students in the programs on the outs will be able to complete their degree.
