The University of Akron is getting a new tenant by the name of LeBron James.
WKYC announced exclusively Thursday morning that the LeBron James Family Foundation has established the I PROMISE Institute, which will be coming to InfoCision Stadium.
The institute will be located on the south end of level 3 in the stadium.
Once complete, the space will be used as a resource for LJFF students who earn the guaranteed four-year tuition and general service fees scholarship. It will have a team of educators dedicated to researching best practices, implementing academic interventions and providing around-the-clock support for its students as they navigate college.
“When we first started this program, I wanted my kids to graduate from high school,” LeBron James said. “But the more we grow as a Foundation, the more we find can be done to give our kids the best chance to be successful. We don’t just want our kids to get to college, we want them to graduate from college and we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to help them do that.”
