University of Akron trustees meet as Tressel addresses YSU forum

Posted:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The University of Akron board of trustees are meeting behind closed doors at the same time one of their candidates for university president is making a pitch to take the same position at Youngstown State University.

Former Ohio State and Youngstown State University football coach Jim Tressel is on the YSU campus today as part of the interview process for the three remaining applicants seeking the YSU post.

Tressel, who met informally this morning with some students on the YSU campus, is scheduled to address trustees and the public at the trustees board room at 2:00 p.m. today. 

At that same hour, the University of Akron board of trustees meet in executive session to discuss Tressel and the other two candidates in the running for the Akron president's post.

A University of Akron spokesperson tells 21 News that trustees could come out of executive session and choose a president, or a decision could come at the trustee's next regular meeting the following Monday, or any successive trustees meeting.

21 News reporter Lindsay McCoy will be reporting on the University of Akron trustees meeting tonight at six and on wfmj.com.

21 News will provide a live stream of all three YSU candidate's forums on wfmj.com and on mobile devices using our iPhone and Android apps.

All YSU forums are scheduled to take place at 2:00 p.m.

Tuesday, May 6, Gary L. Miller
Wednesday, May 7, Mary Cullinan
