Statement on the passing of former university president Edward H. Jennings

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

I join the Buckeye community in mourning the loss of former Ohio State President Edward H. Jennings, PhD.

Dr. Jennings guided our university through a period of great change — navigating economic challenges to lay the groundwork for the institution we have become. We can trace many of our achievements in academics and diversity to his expertise and dedication.

We extend our deepest sympathies to President Jennings' loved ones.
