OSU’s Interim Prez Not In Active Pursuit Of Permanent Position
Ohio State Universityâ€™s interim head Joseph Alutto today reiterated that he is not actively seeking the presidentâ€™s position permanently.
Speaking today on WOSUâ€™s All Sides With Ann Fisher, Alutto said the decision is the search committeeâ€™s to make.
â€œThis is not a position that you really apply for,â€ Alutto said. â€œThis is something that the timing seems right, the fit seems right, the ability to commit for the long term seems right. And this is really not a decision for me to make.â€
Alutto took over as interim president upon the retirement of E. Gordon Gee. Gee resigned July 1st after comments he made disparaging Catholics and the SEC came to light.
