E. Gordon Gee, former president of the Ohio State University, has been tapped to lead a statewide effort to review higher education quality and value. Gov. John Kasich asked Gee to serve this function as an arm of the Ohio Board of Regents. 

Gee says he hopes his group can find ways of improving higher education while making it more affordable, but he didn’t provide any specifics of what he would accomplish and what standards his group may recommend. 

“I want to take a look at all the good ideas out there and one of the things I know — having been president at past universities — is that each institution is different. And so the mistake that we would make in any kind of recommendation that we provide for the governor or for the Legislature ... (that says) there is one size that fits all,” Gee said.

Gee has a lot on his plate after stepping down as president. He’s already OSU's president emeritus and he also plans to teach at Harvard. Gee says he will not be paid to lead the governor’s new effort.
