30 Years in Academic Leadership: Advising a University President
April 11, 2012 | 12:10-11:59 PM | The Barrister Club
This is an invitation-only event.
The Program on Law and Leadership invites interested students to a special luncheon with Jeff Kaplan ’76, senior vice president for development at The Ohio State University. Kaplan will join a small group of about 18 students for a private conversation series luncheon, titled “40 Years in Academic Leadership: Advising a University President.” The luncheon is scheduled for 12:10 p.m. April 11 at the Barrister Club.
Kaplan began his career at Ohio State in the 1970s, working in athletics, admissions, and business administration. He served under President E. Gordon Gee at Vanderbilt University and returned to Ohio State with Gee in 2007. Over the past four years, Kaplan has served in several leadership roles and most recently oversaw the development of the first comprehensive master plan for the university, which was approved last year.
In his new role as senior vice president of university development, Kaplan leads Ohio State's fundraising efforts. He serves as president of the Ohio State University Foundation and special assistant to the president for advancement, which involves the aligning of university communications, alumni, and development activities, as well as advising the president in other areas, including medicine and athletics.
Because space is limited, the Program on Law and Leadersip will conduct a lottery to fill available spots for this event. Students who want to be added to the lottery should RSVP as soon as possible and no later than April 5 to Annina Parini at firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners of the lottery will receive an email notification letting them know that they have a reserved seat at the luncheon.
