I’ve known Dr. McGee for several years, dating back to our introduction at an American Council of Education (ACE) Advanced Leaders Institute. While his accomplishments are many, what set’s him a part is his intellect and thoughtfulness. Oliver brings a powerful approach to his work that is grounded in deep insights into a range of topics including and not limited to technology, STEM preparation, politics, diversity, and organizational change. Without doubt, his greatest quality is that he is an independent thinker, who moves beyond convention to explore difficult and complex issues in meaningful ways. I appreciate his contributions greatly and offer this general recommendation without reservation.

Hi Dr. McGee,

Thank you for accepting my invitation to connect. I have thought about you often over the years wondering how you were and what you were doing. I tell people all the time about you. My TA during my U of A studies toward earning my BSCE who was the Ohio State University marching band drum major. What I share most is how you impacted my life.

The spring semester of 1984 was a horrible time for me. I got D’s in Dynamics and Mechanics of Materials, and had lost hope in my ability to stay in civil engineering. I had completed all the paperwork and collected all the necessary signatures to transfer into education, I would be a high school history teacher instead. All that was left was turning in the paperwork.

Then I took Mechanics from you in summer session 1984. I got an A in your class, but more importantly, I understood the material and was confident again. I never turned in the transfer paperwork.

I have had a great career, serving the public in many ways through engineering and managing public infrastructure projects. I owe my success to many people, to God, to family, to strong supporting staff. But none of it would have happened without that summer class with you, and that foam rubber “beam”.

It has been too many years coming, but thank you.

With warmest regards and deepest gratitude. Your student,

Jeffrey A. Kramer

I had the privilege of studying under Dr. McGee when he was a professor at The Ohio State University in the early ’90s. Dr. McGee taught with an energy and enthusiasm that caused his students to nominate him for the outstanding professor’s award. On the rare occassions that I had to work on the department’s computers on Saturday nights, Dr. McGee was always there. In addition to his teaching dedication, he also found time to play basketball with us students and he was the only professor that attended our concrete canoe race in Kentucky. When socializing, Dr. McGee was in some ways more like one of the students in terms of his energy and enthusiasm, but when teaching, he demonstrated the knowledge of one of the learned professors combined with the energy and enthusiasm of a star student.
