Without a Staff, Does a University Press Exist?

Inside Higher Ed
July 31st, 2015

The University of Akron has insisted for the past two days that it is not eliminating its university press. But the university admits that it has eliminated the jobs of all three employees, including the director.
Reconciling these facts has a lot of people doubting the viability of the press at Akron, although many are campaigning to keep it.
Earlier this month, the university announced that more than 200 people would lose their jobs -- and that the baseball team would be eliminated -- as part of an effort to put the university on stronger financial footing. The baseball team was the only specific program that Akron said at the time would be eliminated.
