This week, Ohio State University’s Board of Trustees convened for their May meetings for the first time in a few years without a permanent President. John Zeiger, the trustee, gave a presentation on recent happenings and congratulated the recent college graduates. The trustees then voted on the agenda, approving the interim budget of around $548 million in income and $663 million in expenses and the adoption of Ohio’s free speech policy. The trustees also issued a statement against Senate Bill 83, voicing their concern about the potential impacts on Ohio’s college scope and campus life.

The board further held meetings throughout the week and Kristine Devine, VP of operations and deputy CFO, noted that the nearly $79 million deficit is due to a lack of tuition and fees income during the summer.
