New Member: The University of Akron

The REMADE Institute is pleased to welcome the University of Akron as a new Academic Member to our growing membership base.

The institution now known as The University of Akron was founded as Buchtel College in 1870 by the Ohio Universalist Convention, which was strongly influenced by the efforts, energy and financial support of Akronites, particularly industrialist John R. Buchtel.

The University of Akron is a vibrant community within metropolitan Akron, with more than 80 buildings on 218 acres.
