University of Akron Key Developments

University of Akron Pays Thousands to Settle Broken Leases

The University of Akron has paid thousands of dollars to landlords to settle leases broken by students who left the school after the baseball program was eliminated. Most of the 27 players who withdrew from the university were released from residence hall and off-campus leases. But some landlords demanded payment, especially if they could not find other tenants, according to documents filed in the Ohio Court of Claims. The father of one former player, who was sued by his landlord for breaking the lease, filed an action against UA in the Court of Claims, which hears cases against state agencies. UA agreed to reimburse Rick Simonton the $3,420.29 he paid the landlord to settle a lawsuit in Summit County Common Pleas Court.

University of Akron Announces Executive Changes

Larry Williams, who resigned as Marquette University athletic director in December 2013 after less than two years on the job, has been named athletic director of the University of Akron in Ohio. Williams' appointment is effective September 1, 2015 pending approval by the university's board of trustees. He replaces Tom Wistrcill, who returned to the Learfield Sports' university partnership group as senior vice president. After leaving Marquette, Williams worked for Equity Management Inc. Prior to Williams' Marquette post, he was director of athletics and recreation at the University of Portland (Ore.) for seven years.

University of Akron to Cut 213 Jobs

University of Akron rescinded a fee imposed on upper-level courses and agreed to abolish 213 positions, but would not take questions from about two dozen concerned faculty, staff and students. The moves to reduce jobs and eliminate a $60 million shortfall over the next three years were difficult but necessary to maintain a strong institution. Of the 213 positions to be eliminated, 161 are filled.
