STINT visits President E. Gordon Gee

Published 2010-11-23

A delegation from STINT led by its Executive Director, Dr. Andreas Gothenberg, met President E. Gordon Gee of the Ohio State University on October 26. According to Time Magazine, Gordon Gee is one of the best College Presidents in the US. He is striving for a revolution of higher education, where classrooms and labs are the engines of growth that mines and factories used to be 100 years ago. To achieve this, change is needed. For instance, departments have to be better at collaborating and curriculums need to be modernized. They have to be transformed to serve the new education needs that the knowledge economy requires. President Gee has brought the Ohio State University into a very dynamic phase thanks to a modern and competitive strategy that challenges the Ivy League universities. The university is also establishing physical presence in China and India. Other international Gateways will soon follow. President Gee manages a $ 4.35 billion dollar budget. The Ohio State University has almost 60 000 students and 40 000 staff.

STINT:s Executive Director signed an Agreement of Collaboration regarding the foundation's Excellence in Teaching Program with the Ohio State University. It enables Swedish faculty to stay at the Ohio State University and engage in teaching for a full fall semester. Ohio State will contribute to the program by offering many new opportunities and excellence in teaching connected to world class research. The collaboration covers all academic disciplines with a focus on the humanities and social sciences.
