COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State University’s top trustees say insensitive comments by the university president have embarrassed and divided the university.

The trustees say in a letter to president Gordon Gee that his comments risk diminishing the collective efforts of the university and of Gee’s own good work.

The March 11 letter was obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

It lays out several steps Gee must take following the revelation of remarks he made last year jabbing Notre Dame, Roman Catholics and the Southeastern Conference.

Those steps include issuing personal apologies and getting help from professionals to revisit Gee’s personal communications and speechwriting processes.
