New Ohio State President Kristina Johnson
Kristina Johnson has stepped into the role of president of Ohio State University during an unprecedented time of social upheaval and pandemic-related precaution.
The university slashed its operating budget by more than $252 million this year, in response to revenue losses brought on by COVID-19. And there's no football this fall, following a decision from the Big Ten Conference.
Meanwhile, coronavirus cases on Ohio State's Columbus campus, and at colleges across Ohio and the country, have rapidly increased after just a week of classes resuming. Johnson has said that students and staff need to control the spread of COVID-19 in order to prevent the school from closing down again.
Wednesday at 11 a.m., hear Johnson join All Sides With Ann Fisher for her first sit-down interview since taking over as president. We'll also look at how higher education across the country is adapting to this unconventional fall term.
