Gordon Gee on OSU Funding / Gambling Addiction Therapist Arnie Wexner

A conversation with The Ohio State University (OSU) President E. Gordon Gee about funding, rising tuition and student enrollment. The interview follows an announcement by Gee and Les Wexner, chairman and CEO of the Limited Brands corporation, that the Limited Brands Foundation would be donating $100 million dollars to fund various OSU initiatives, especially the Medical Center. Hear about the two areas benefiting most from the donation - the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute - and why the Medical Center is the primary recipient of this gift. Tuition is rising, and technology is changing. What will the changes in cost, numbers, and technology mean for the future of the university and the state?
