Ohio State Provost Joseph Alutto is expected to step down from his position at the university.
Alutto, who also holds the title of executive vice president and serves the university as chief academic officer, is expected to leave his post and be replaced by College of Arts and Sciences Executive Dean Joseph Steinmetz.
OSU spokeswoman Gayle Saunders told The Lantern Alutto will step down as provost June 30, and Steinmetz will take his place July 1.
Alutto has been with OSU since 1991, and assumed his current position in 2007. Prior to that appointment he was dean of the Fisher College of Business.
Steinmetz came to the university in 2009 to work with the College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college within the university. Before that he served as interim provost at the University of Kansas.
