Temple Takes a Hint from Freeh—Others to Follow?

Temple University, though completely unrelated to any of the events at Penn State, has taken it upon itself to review and possibly implement some of the recommendations made by the Freeh report to Penn State.

Temple’s acting president, Richard M. Englert, has assembled a large task force with members from across university departments, including academics, athletics, human resources, risk management, and Temple’s general counsel. Englert made the announcement through an email sent to all students and also posted on the university’s website.

Englert wrote, “I believe every university should take Judge Freeh’s report as an opportunity to review its own policies and procedures.”

Yesterday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that Penn State’s new policy regarding minors on campus has spread to another university. “Just the other day, I had a call from a former Penn State person who is now dean at another university and been tasked with the job of putting together a new policy for minors on campus,” President Erickson said. “And she said, ‘Would you mind if we use the Penn State policy, because it’s the best policy out there now.'”

Last Thursday, Erickson said that he hoped for Penn State to be a leading example henceforth in preventing and quashing sexual abuse. The Freeh report may turn out to be a catalyst for nationwide reform in that department, but we’ll have to see if it reaches any other schools, and if Temple implements any of the Freeh report’s recommendations.
