COLUMBUS, Ohio - The head of the American Council on Education calls retiring Ohio State University President Gordon Gee "an iconic leader" who had a "profound impact" on higher education in the United States.
A statement from council President Molly Corbett Broad says Gee left "an indelible mark" at each institution he oversaw and earned the respect of university administrators, policymakers and business leaders. He previously held the top job at West Virginia University, the University of Colorado, Brown and Vanderbilt.
