Ohio State planned sensitivity training for Gee



Published: Thu, November 14, 2013 @ 10:30 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Email records show Ohio State University began planning cultural sensitivity training for then-president Gordon Gee after he made comments jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools last December.

Records released Wednesday show that the university last spring considered several proposals for sensitivity and media training for Gee, whose off-the-cuff remarks had gotten him into trouble repeatedly.

The proposals included having Gee talk with trainers in person, off-site or by phone to develop a deeper respect for diversity and learn techniques for discussing challenging topics and avoiding pitfalls.

Gee retired July 1, shortly after The Associated Press first reported remarks he made to the university’s Athletic Council last December.

An Ohio State spokeswoman says Gee retired before any coaching sessions occurred.

Gee remains with Ohio State as a professor.
