AKRON, Ohio — It was a stunning political victory.

Now, students at the University of Akron can take a course that will analyze the success of Donald Trump’s presidential run.

“My course will answer a lot of questions people still have after the election,” said Matthew Akers, Ph.D., director of government relations and assistant director of the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, in a news release from the University of Akron.
