He's comfortable, confident, and a steady hand in the role. Would have liked to have him for 4 years, not just 2. That office is constantly swamped with internal and external people/groups pushing their own specific agendas and/or strategies they think the university should pursue. Hope the next president isn't intimidated and keeps Sherman around in an advisory roles of some sort to continue the current momentum/plans.


Can somebody hit a pull up jumper for me?.....

I agree. I wonder, in the end, if they might decided he's the best person for the job, and reverse course. Stranger things have happened.

Quote:
Sherman said that some schools, such a Cincinnati, Miami and OU, will probably do well this year. Ohio State University continued to stay flat.

“Then you’ll see other schools that have really struggled these last couple years,” he said. “Some of the publics too that are still declining. ... There’s more reason to make sure that you’re adding value to the student experience, so that they understand why you come to Ohio and not go to University of Baltimore.

“I see that bifurcation. I think for those schools that are struggling and they have a high discount rate, they’re in more financial trouble and right now. We’re not. We are sitting with a very strong balance sheet.”

Another good article with lots of quotes from the president. Also points that enrollment gains have been at the expense of OSU in accordance with my equilibrium enrollment theory.
