STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The head of the Penn State board of trustees is vowing to put into effect changes recommended in a report on the child sex abuse scandal that has engulfed the university.
Chairman Karen Peetz says the report by retired FBI director Louis Freeh (LOO'-ee free) recommends "structural changes for the way the university is governed to ensure greater transparency and collaboration." She says she and university president Rodney Erickson have appointed a task force including board members and administration officials to ensure implementation of the measures "with care and urgency."
Peetz also vows an evaluation of the "fundamental culture" of Penn State and efforts for "transparency and accountability."
She said Wednesday night members of the university community feel sadness, disappointment and anger over the university's leadership failures.
