Ohio State presidential search tops $600,000

COLUMBUS — Newly released documents show Ohio State University spent more than $600,000 on the search for its new president.

Expenses included $85,000 for an ad in the New York Times, $186,000 for private jet service and about $231,000 for an executive head-hunting firm.

The documents released Tuesday at the request of the Associated Press and other media outlets also show $36,000 paid to a retired Harvard professor for consulting services.

The seven-month search ended in January with the selection of University of California, Irvine chancellor Michael Drake as the 15th president of Ohio State.

Drake, who assumes his duties July 1, replaces former president Gordon Gee, who retired after remarks he made jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools were made public a year ago.
