Board of Trustees To Discuss Pending Litigation At Special Meeting

The Penn State Board of Trustees will virtually convene this Thursday in a special meeting to discuss the potential settlement of pending litigation. Held via a conference call, the public part of the trustees’ discussion will commence at 10:30 a.m.

What is that pending litigation? Well, your guess is as good as ours. There are a number of pending high-profile lawsuits stemming from the Sandusky scandal with which Penn State is involved, although one lawsuit pretty far along is the Board of Trustees agricultural election dispute with Jesse Stairs. Or, it could turn out to be something more mundane. In any case, Penn State Public Media will provide an audio-stream for the public here.

Last month’s Board of Trustees meeting lent few clues as to the nature of the pending litigation. During the March 19 meeting in Hershey, the trustees approved a 3.89 percent room and board fee increase, Provost Nick Jones discussed the relative increase in non-academic staff positions, and the results of the alumni survey revealed a 19 percent trust in the Board of Trustees.

On April 10, the day following the meeting, the election process for the Board of Trustees begins.
