New Ohio State president outlines mission, vision

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University's new president is ready to outline some of his priorities as he begins work on campus.

University of California-Irvine chancellor Michael Drake was chosen as Ohio State's 15th president in January, ending a seven-month search.

The 63-year-old Drake planned to discuss his mission and vision for the university Wednesday in some of his first public remarks.

Drake is the university's first black president. He arrived last month.

Drake replaces former president Gordon Gee, who retired last year after remarks he made jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools were made public.

Gee is now president at West Virginia University, having returned to a position he first held in 1981.
