I received this e-mail this morning, probably some of you have as well. Found it very interesting that we can recommend a candidate or offer a suggestion.
Since the links in the body of the e-mail did not pass thru on the copy / paste .. here they are:
As you know, one of Ohio State’s most important current tasks is determining who will serve as the next president of the university. A number of voices will contribute to this conversation, including those of our Buckeye family. There are a number of ways for you to participate in the process.
This Friday, Aug. 30, the Ohio State Board of Trustees will assemble a panel of current and former university presidents. The Symposium on the University Presidency will provide insight from five national leaders in higher education regarding effective leadership and the changing nature of the university presidency. The event is open to the public and will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern time in the U.S. Bank Theater at the Ohio Union. A live stream will be available on the presidential search site. If you cannot attend in person, you can watch it live at go.osu.edu/Symposium1.
In addition, a series of public forums will be held in September around the state where you will be able to share your suggestions. I hope that many of you will plan to participate. Please visit Public Forums for a list of dates and locations.
Finally, you can visit the presidential search site throughout the process for updates and to recommend a candidate and offer suggestions.
Thank you for your support as we move forward to find the next president of this great university. Go Bucks!
