McDavis shifts his focus
(WOUB) - Ohio University President Roderick McDavis says he's shifting his focus toward fundraising and government lobbying.

He's also expanding Provost Kathy Krendl's role in overseeing academic affairs.

McDavis said in an on campus speech yesterday that Krendl takes on the new title of executive vice president and provost.

She'll oversee the university's regional campuses as well as its research, diversity and community outreach offices.

The move comes one week after senior faculty members presented the board of trustees with a letter asking for "sweeping change."

The letter criticized the university for a decline in the quality of entering students, falling endowment and the handling of the budget.
