University of Akron President Scott Scarborough knew addressing '$60 million problem' would be hard, but necessary - Karen Farkas, Cleveland.com

University of Akron President Scott Scarborough believes he has addressed the school's "$60 million problem" since taking office 13 months ago, but acknowledges that he and other officials should have been more forthright in explaining budget cuts, layoffs and other cost-saving actions. Scarborough met Wednesday with the Northeast Ohio Media Group's editorial board to talk about how he had anticipated that the moves would be controversial yet why it was necessary to quickly launch a three-year plan to eliminate a $20 million budget shortfall while providing $10 million for new initiatives and $30 million for capital repairs and improvements. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2015/08/university_of_akron_president_scott_scarborough_knew_addressing_60_million_problem_would_be_hard_but_necessary.html
