Big Buyouts at U of Akron in General UA & Campus Discussion Posted March 24 · Report reply On 3/22/2019 at 10:17 AM, ZippyRulz said: Or just let them expand further and take over one or more of the NEO universities since they have the brand and the bucks. If they ever wanted to solidify their hold on Cleveland/Akron, the opportunity is before them now. I doubt they want to take on management of any of the other schools. Why add that hassle when they don't need to. They're doing fine financially, enrollment-wise, in selectivity and fundraising. Why upset the apple cart? I'd guess that they'd try to influence any reforms to the system to their liking but not take any responsibility to actually step in and save any of the schools....in fact, maybe even try to gain some kind of autonomy from the state for themselves in the process.
