The University of Akron has an interim president. Mathew Wilson, dean of the law school, was picked Monday by the university’s board of trustees.
Wilson, joined the University of Akron two years ago. And he says he decided to go for what is likely to be a very difficult job because he’s become sold on the potential of the university and of the community. He sees both as vastly underrated.
His first priorities are improved enrollment, retention and graduation, and stabilized finances. He says his first actions will be listening.
