Joseph Alutto

An enduring legacy

Later this month, Joseph A. Alutto will conclude his second term as Ohio State’s interim president, after focusing on driving the university forward during a time of transition.

Alutto, who joined Ohio State in 1991 as dean of what’s now known as Fisher College of Business, has established himself as a “hard-nosed” and “strategic” leader known for decisiveness.

Upon the conclusion of his term, Alutto looks back at the breadth of an accomplished career and reflects on Ohio State’s role as a land-grant university for the world.
