Criminals hordes want to work at U Akron?

uakron_logoThe University of Akron is overwhelmed with criminals who seek employment there. That, anyway, seems a reasonable way to interpret the news reported by InsideHigherEd, which says:

Many colleges now require criminal background checks of all new employees. But the University of Akron — in what some experts believe is a first — is not only requiring a criminal background check, but is stating that new employees must be willing to submit a DNA sample.

One way to do this: submit stool samples as the initial form of inquiry to the school’s employment office.
