Jeff Sherman was appointed by the Provost in fall 2017 to lead the development of the Gateway concept. Jeff reports to Susana Rivera-Mills, Vice Provost for Academic Programs and Learning Innovation. He is also working in close collaboration with Lisa Templeton, Associate Provost for Extended Campus, as well as the academic colleges.

Rich Duncombe, director of the newly formed OSU Innovation Hub (IHub), is also assisting in Gateway’s development. The IHub, which formalizes and continues the institutional innovation effort initiated in 2016-17, is a place for teams of faculty, administrators and staff to develop, test and incubate bold ideas that will advance the University’s strategic goals.
