UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State President Rodney Erickson today announced the re-launch of the "Openness" website at http://progress.psu.edu.
The new version of the website is the next step in the University’s work to ensure broader communications with key Penn State stakeholders, including current and prospective students and their families, alumni, faculty and staff, local communities, and state and national media. The “Progress” website includes new functionality and features that make it easier to find, receive and share information.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Board of Trustees website has a new design that puts key information at the fingertips of those who visit.
"This is just the first iteration," said Karen Peetz, chair of the board. "We'll have more changes soon as we work to make the information on the site even easier to find and read. This is, of course, a continuation of the board's pledge for openness and for providing more and better information to the Penn State community and beyond. It's an ongoing process."
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State has made further progress on interim recommendations from Louis Freeh, whose team's independent investigation continues, Kenneth Frazier, chair of the Board of Trustees' Special Investigations Task Force reported on Friday (May 4).
The task force in November retained Freeh, a former FBI director and federal judge, and his firm to conduct an independent, external investigation into how the alleged acts of the November 2011 grand jury presentment related to former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky could have happened at Penn State, where breakdowns occurred and what changes should be made for the future.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Daniel R. Hagen, immediate past-chair of the University Faculty Senate, reported to the Board of Trustees Friday (May 4) on the activities of the Senate for the 2011-12 academic year.
Hagen noted that the year was "likely to be remembered as one of the most unusual and stressful Senate years ever," because of the issues surrounding the child sexual abuse allegations surrounding Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant coach.
Penn State has infused more than $1.1 million into its newly established Center for the Protection of Children, based at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. That figure is more than twice the amount promised in December, when creation of the center was announced. The University also donated $1.5 million in December to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR).
