The President’s Cabinet is composed of administrative leaders at OSUIT appointed by the university president. The cabinet meets regularly to discuss and oversee all aspects of the university including academic services; student services; workforce and economic development; fiscal services; marketing and communications; technology services, and grants and fundraising.
