The Presidential Search process was officially launched this past summer. Since then the search committee and advisory subcommittee have held open forums to seek input from students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of Ohio State.
In August 2013, the Ohio State University Board of Trustees convened a panel of current and former university presidents from across the country to help frame the search for a new president of Ohio State. Watch the archival video
The presidential search website offers a location to suggest a potential candidate, offer thoughts on the qualities needed in our next president, and provides updates on the search process. Presidential Search home page http://trustees.osu.edu/presidentialsearch/
