Ed O'Neill: 'Slap in the face' for alma mater YSU to make GOP election denier president - The Last Word - MSNBC


Actor Ed O’Neill, best known for his roles in “Married with Children” and “Modern Family,” tells MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell that he can’t keep his honorary degree from his alma mater Youngstown State University because it “doesn’t mean anything" now that the school has appointed Trump loyalist Rep. Bill Johnson as its president. - Aired on 01/16/2024.

In many (if not most or all) states, presidential appointments at public universities are largely out of the universities' hands. The presidents are appointed by a body that governs some or all public universities in the state. In mine (Midwestern state with a 4-letter vowel-dominated name, but not Ohio), that would be the Board of Regents.

Ideally, these appointments are made in consultation with a search committee derived from the university. But in recent years, we've seen these committees ignored. At my own institution about 10 years ago, the president chosen by the Board of Regents was considered unqualified by many on the search committee.

Full disclosure, I don't know how it works in Ohio - but if it's like other states, the facial slap isn't being delivered by Youngstown State.
