PSU trustees hope to address alumni concerns

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State President Rodney Erickson says he's trying to address the perception that the university isn't being as open and honest as it could be in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Erickson said in remarks Friday to the university's Board of Trustees that he's continuing to reach out to alumni, students and other groups and working to be more accountable.

The trustees are meeting for the first time since the chaotic week in November after child sex abuse allegations were brought against Sandusky, a retired assistant football coach.

Some alumni are calling for wholesale changes in the board's makeup and more transparency from the board and administration.

Erickson called the last two months an "extraordinarily trying time" for the school. He said the school is cooperating with several ongoing investigations related to the Sandusky case.
