Penn State Trustees
Penn State’s Board of Trustees has approved a $4.42 billion budget and tuition increases averaging about 2.8 percent for all students.
Penn State’s trustees are on a mission to promote the reforms they have enacted as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, hoping their record might persuade the NCAA to reconsider its crippling penalties against the university before they are due to expire in 2018.
Negotiators for Penn State University have begun offering financial settlements to the victims of Jerry Sandusky, according to several sources with direct knowledge of the discussions.
Judge Louis Freeh announced on Tuesday that a report on how Penn State and its top administrators handled the Jerry Sandusky matter will be released on Thursday at 9 a.m.
