Penn State trustees open 2 days of meetings

    Penn State trustees have opened two days of meetings during which they’re expected to discuss the recommendations from former FBI director Louis Freeh in response to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

    It’s the board’s first formal meeting since the NCAA punished Penn State with strict sanctions in July following Freeh’s scathing report.

     

    Trustees met in committees yesterday to discuss issues but did not take any votes. Committees discussing legal issues and risk met in private.

    The full board votes on issues today.  

    A committee devoted to outreach met in a public session yesterday and discussed a multi-pronged public relations campaign designed to tell stories about school researchers, alumni and students, and how the university is moving forward.
