Ohio University alumnus named chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents 

The governor’s office announced today that Governor John Kasich has named former Ohio State Representative and Ohio University alumnus John Carey chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents. 

“Chancellor Carey has been a key mover in Ohio’s higher education and K-12 education reform movements and, more recently, a staunch advocate for Shawnee State University – experiences that make him well-suited to assume responsibilities as Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents,” Ohio University President Roderick J. McDavis said. “His extensive public service, his bold approach to tackling issues of importance in the Ohio legislature and his commitment to educational access for students in Appalachian Ohio has earned his alma mater’s highest esteem. I look forward to working with Chancellor Carey to strengthen Ohio’s public higher education system in the years ahead.” 

Carey graduated from Ohio University in 1981 with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
