    HONORING E. GORDON GEE UPON HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE OHIO STATE 
                               UNIVERSITY

                                 ______
                                 

                         HON. PATRICK J. TIBERI

                                of ohio

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, June 25, 2013

  Mr. TIBERI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor and recognize Dr. E. 
Gordon Gee upon his retirement as president of The Ohio State 
University.
   Expressing how much President Gee has meant to The Ohio State 
University and the many students and faculty who have benefitted from 
his unwavering commitment to higher education is an impossible task. As 
a graduate of Ohio State, as an admirer and as a friend of this 
remarkable person, it gives me great pleasure to add my personal 
appreciation and commendation.
   For over three decades, Dr. Gee has held more university 
presidencies than any other American. Prior to his resumption of the 
presidency of Ohio State on October 1, 2007, Gee was chancellor of 
Vanderbilt University from 2000 to 2007 and president of Brown 
University from 1998 to 2000, of Ohio State from 1990 to 1998, of the 
University of Colorado from 1985 to 1990, and of West Virginia 
University from 1981 to 1985. In 2010 Time magazine rated President Gee 
one of the top ten college presidents in the United States.
   Upon his retirement, Dr. Gee will leave behind a legacy that will 
permeate throughout Ohio and across the country for years to come. 
While he is moving on to the next phase in his life, Dr. Gee will never 
stop doing what he loves: inspiring students and contributing to 
enhancing the quality of higher education.
   On behalf of the citizens of Ohio's 12th Congressional District, I 
would like to wish Dr. Gee the best of luck and thank him for his 
devotion to Ohio State, the great state of Ohio and all of the 
communities that have benefitted from his invaluable contributions.
