AKRON

Jim Tressel tells the audience at the University of Akron, stressing oneness for success: "We'll work to be as selfless as possible as we work to be the best we can be."

In other words, in this tough economic climate for higher education, the natural inclination to look out for the self has to be suppressed for the greater good of the whole.'

"We're here for student success" and making sure the region flourishes.

He says if he were to choose a UA provost, that person would have to be selfless, and a great communicator.

Tressel also told the UA crowd, "We are all

responsible for recruitment." He says retention is No. 1 financial lever

the university has. To ensure young people succeed, UA must give students

relevant learning opportunities and make sure students are ready to

compete in the world.
