Penn State has completed 75 percent of the recommendations outlined in the Freeh Report, and a new related update will be released on the Progress website later this week, university spokesman David La Torre said via email.
Interim Executive Vice President and Provost Rob Pangborn said the university is currently “on pace” with the “study or implementation” of the recommendations. The statement was made during a University Faculty Senate meeting Tuesday.
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh issued 119 recommendations for the university last July after investigating the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case and related events. The recommendations were made in connection with governance and campus safety, among others.
Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coordinator, was convicted in June on 45 counts of child sex abuse, for which he was sentenced to serve 30 to 60 years in prison.
University Trustees have previously stated that they would like to have completed the implementation of Freeh’s recommendations by the end of the 2013 or issue statements as to why certain changes were not made.
