Ohio State Presidential Search Not Near Conclusion

A group searching for the next president of Ohio State University continues to do its work behind closed doors.

Wadsworth says the size of the university makes the search more difficult.
â€œItâ€™s big and complicated and thatâ€™s whatâ€™s exciting about it. So weâ€™re looking for somebody who is excited about complexity, has dealt with complexity, understands complexity and wants to take Ohio State to the next level of academic excellence,” says Wadsworth.
Some candidates are being invited to visit the OSU campus. Wadsworth says search committee meetings will be held as needed. The group was established in July after Gordon Gee retired.
