Description

When Charles Ping first arrived at Ohio University in 1975, the university used to be experiencing a decline in student enrollment and confronting serious financial challenges. But reasonably than specializing in its problems, President Ping as an alternative concentrated on Ohio University’s potential.

“What attracted me used to be, essentially, the richness of the campus in people and programs,” said Ping. All through the nineteen years that Ping served as president, he guided Ohio University in scholarship, research, and service, and substantially increased the size of the campus throughout the acquisition of The Ridges. After Ping announced his resignation in Spring 1993, the April 26 headline within the Columbus Dispatch read “Ping Leaving Ohio University with Big Shoes to Fill.”

In Ping’s 1994 undergraduate commencement ceremony speech, he said, “A university is a link from the past, throughout the present, to the future.” Ping continues to link the university’s past to the present on this new book published for the Ohio University Libraries by Ohio University Press. A Conversation about Ohio University and the Presidency, 1975–1994, is an edited version of the transcript of videotaped interviews recorded in Might and June 2011.

“This can be a conversation between two old friends,” said Ping of the series of interviews conducted by Sam Crowl, Shakespearean scholar and now trustee professor emeritus.
