Ohio State Provost announces interim dean for Lima campus
Executive Vice President and Provost Joseph A. Alutto has recommended to Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee the appointment of Gregory S.

Subject to approval by The Ohio State University Board of Trustees, this interim dean appointment will be effective July 1, 2013.
Dr. Rose will serve in dual roles on the Lima and Marion campuses and assist Ohio State Lima during its leadership transition period. John R. Snyder, current dean and director at Ohio State Lima, announced in November he would step down from the position in June 2013 at the end of his second term.
