Washington DC – Congressman Tim Ryan made the following statement in response to the University of Akron’s selection of their next President:

I am happy to extend my congratulations to Dr. Scott L. Scarborough for being selected as the next President of the University of Akron. Dr. Scarborough is a proven and effective leader who will ensure that Akron continues to meet the high standards they have always been known for and help them achieve new heights of academic excellence. The experience he earned as Provost and Executive Vice President of The University of Toledo will not only be beneficial towards the success of the University but also the City of Akron. His time at the University of Toledo has introduced him to the high caliber educators, staff and students found here in Ohio and I look forward to working with him to continue to set the bar for higher educational institutions across the nation. I have every confidence that Dr. Scarborough has the skills and knowledge necessary to be a dynamic and transformative leader here at the University of Akron.
