The Presidential Search Committee is made up of two subcommittees that work together with one another. There is selection subcommittee and an advisory subcommittee.

The 13-members on the advisory subcommittee. The members include faculty, student leaders, staff and senior administrators. The advisory subcommittee is charged with representing and seeking input from the university community to find out the desired qualities, skills and experiences wanted of the next president.

Good luck to the OSU family. I hope they pick a good person to invent the future for students!
