President Gee visits College of Veterinary Medicine Alumni

"We are the state’s university," said President E. Gordon Gee. "So you might say the state is our campus, and we need to be in every part of the state to tell our gospel." Dr. Gee travels every summer to counties throughout Ohio, visiting with alumni and students, touring Ohio-based businesses and meeting with community leaders. 

This summer, Gee’s road trip took him to 39 Ohio counties and three alumni of the College of Veterinary Medicine: Drs. Steve Walker (DVM 2002), Mike Dyer (DVM 1993), and Dan Ulmer (DVM 1968). On both visits, Dr. Gee stressed the importance of the work they are doing in their communities and in the state, and thanked them for their commitment to serving their communities. Gee also spoke about the powerful impact the College of Veterinary Medicine has on the state as a whole.

As president of Ohio State and one of Time magazine’s top leaders in higher education, Gee has made a commitment to tour Ohio during the summer months to speak with prospective students and alumni, and see first-hand some of the university’s partnerships. As the state’s flagship land grant institution, Ohio State provides outreach to every county in the state and plays an important role in addressing issues that impact citizens across the state.
