Board of Trustees to Hold Retreat This Weekend

The Penn State Board of Trustees are holding a special retreat this weekend at the Penn Stater Conference Center, with parts of each session open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

The Centre Daily Times reported on the retreat earlier this week — although the agenda and meeting time didn’t appear on the BOT website until more recently — and said that the focus would be on “team building” and “structure.”

The agenda for the public session of the retreat can be found here. The public will be allowed to attend at 3 p.m. on Saturday, and then again at 9 a.m. on Sunday and for most of the day.

The Centre Daily Times also reported that the board will visit football practice Friday afternoon, which ought to be an amusing time for everyone. Aside from Adam Taliaferro and maybe Anthony Lubrano, the football sidelines wouldn’t seem like a familiar place to most of the board. Imagine Coach Fitzgerald yelling at Linda Strumpf for stepping over the sideline or something, and try not to laugh.

It is unclear whether or not the board has any new business this weekend, but no scheduled vote appears on the agenda.
