At UA, expertise is just a brain trust away

As a notorious slow learner in the ways of higher education these days,  I was pleased to note that the  University of Akron has at least four all-star business executives "in residence"  as the brain trust  advising students in various departments.  The Beacon Journal said they are Tony Alexander, former FirstEnergy  president and CEO;  Steve Myers, former CEO and president of Myers Industries, Inc.; Andy Platt, vice president of enterprise analytics and insights (!) at the J. M. Smucker Co., and Sandy  Pianalto, former  president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

With these experts along with Trust Navigator sharing their expertise with students, what could possibly go wrong?
