Ohio State made plans for Gordon Gee sensitivity training
Ohio State made plans to help reform lightning-rod now-former president Gordon Gee, but he retired before they could be put into action.
The Columbus Dispatch reported Wednesday that Ohio State officials had made plans for now-former president Gordon Gee to undergo sensitivity training in the wake of his infamous "damn Catholics" remarks -- but that Gee retired before those plans could be put into practice.
"The focused approach was something that both the board and I found important for me to do as president of the university," Gee told the Dispatch. "And before I retired as president, my team and I were working to make this happen."
According to the Dispatch:
Ohio State considered a number of proposals, including having Gee attend a number of two-to-three hour sessions, possibly off-campus in a place unfamiliar to him such as a Buddhist temple or women’s center. Officials also considered having him read books and watch movies that would “increase his exposure and challenge this thinking,” according to records requested by The Dispatch this summer and which Ohio State released this morning.
Gee retired July 1 of this year, within weeks of comments made to the Ohio State Athletics Council disparaging Catholics, Notre Dame, the SEC, Louisville and Arkansas coach Bret Bielema becoming public.
