University of Akron sees 6 percent enrollment decline

AKRON (AP) — The University of Akron is seeing a drop in the number of students for the second year in a row.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the 5.9 percent decline to about 27,000 students appeared to be the largest in northeast Ohio.

The school’s trustees plan to meet in October to revamp the budget to reflect the enrollment dip.

The university has been grappling with budget problems and recently eliminated 100 positions, though some slots were vacant. It also took additional steps this year to close a $27.6 million budget gap. The school’s financial officer says the university may need to make other cuts.

Early reports from area universities show Kent State enrollment dropped by about 1 percent, while Youngstown State declined by slightly more than 3 percent.
