The chairperson’s purpose will be to share leadership amongst all individuals that are a part of The University of Akron with decision-making processes.  Each committee has specific responsibilities and will typically have regular meetings every two weeks.

The lists of committees include information technology; budget, finance and benefits; physical environment; communications; athletics and recreation; talent development and human resources; research and public affairs and development. More information about each one can be found on the USG webpage at http://www.uakron.edu/sg/asg/uc/.
