I would like to welcome Dr. John Wiencek as our new Executive Vice President and Provost. I believe the search process went smoothly, and the perspectives of the faculty were heard. I concur with President Miller that strong academic leadership is needed now, and Dr. Wiencek possesses the necessary credentials and experience to lead us through this transition. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Wiencek to The University of Akron and in working collaboratively to ensure his success, which is vital to the success of the institution.
Pam Schulze, President, Akron-AAUP, Professor, Child and Family Development
