Kasich chooses Gee to lead review

Gee was president of five leading U.S. universities before retiring from Ohio State in July after remarks he made disparaging Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools became public.

He recently led the National Commission on Higher Education Attainment in charting a strategy for improving college retention and attainment.

“I don’t know what they’re doing in other states, but in our state if we hold hands and think differently we can begin to impact our costs to make sure we preserve these great institutions well into the future” the Republican governor said.

Gee said delivering value in higher education is “the question of our times.”
