Former USC president takes Ohio State post

Sep 15, 2010 6:53:00 PM - thestate.com
Former University of South Carolina president Andrew Sorensen is leaving his position in the university’s School of Medicine to become Ohio State University’s chief fundraiser.

"Dr. Sorensen is one of the country’s most senior leaders in higher education, and we are remarkably fortunate to have attracted him to lead the university’s comprehensive development efforts," Ohio State President E. Gordon GeeÖ said in a statement released by Ohio State. "Andy’s experience, wisdom and strategic vision will be enormously valuable in engaging alumni and friends in new ways to secure a strong financial foundation for the work of our students, faculty and staff."

In a telephone interview from the Ohio State campus on Wednesday, Sorensen said he has known Gee - a former president of Vanderbilt University - for many years and was intrigued by the opportunity to work with him.

"It’s an exciting new opportunity," Sorensen said.
