Ohio State University has appointed a search committee to seek a successor to former president Gordon Gee.
The committee includes university trustees, faculty and students. The search committee is led by trustee Jeffrey Wadsworth, CEO of Columbus-based Battelle Memorial Institute. It will formally begin working on Friday. An executive search firm is expected to have a role in the process. Gee retired July 1st after his remarks criticizing Notre Dame, Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools became public.
