PSU PRESIDENT PLEDGES A $2 MILLION UNIVERSITY DONATION FOR RAPE PREVENTION PROGRAM AT PSU
Fri, 02 Dec 2011 07:58 AM EST

Penn State president Rodney Erickson claims faculty members should not be concerned that college curators would “whitewash” an investigation into child sex-abuse allegations towards previous assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Football odds

Erickson promised Tues. to the University Faculty Senate that investigators will have unobstructed access to and accordance from the school. He said the leadership of a council checking into the claims should lend confidence “that there’ll be no whitewash … No sweeping under the rug.”

Still, many faculty members voiced disbelief about the intentions of the investigators and trustees.

Curators have appointed former FBI director Louis Freeh to guide the probe for a council spearheaded by trustee Kenneth Frazier.

Erickson asserted he would urge curators to have the council members meet with faculty.

Sandusky claims he’s trusting on charges he sexually abused 8 boys over a 15-year span.

Erickson further said that Penn State would make a response to the NCAA’s Dec. Sixteen cut-off point for answers into its handling of the scandal as a “work in progress.” A school spokeswoman cited the volume of inquiries under way as a potential factor.

Investigations started after police arrested Sandusky last month. Football spreads

Since taking over for ousted president Graham Spanier, Erickson has vowed to make Penn State a pace-setter in raising appreciation of points connected to kid abuse following the scandal which has tarnished the school’s image. The effort includes using football bowl revenue that sometimes goes back to the athletic dept to causes related to issues like this.

The total revenue, Erickson announced Tues., will reach at least $2 million, $500,000 more than the amount the college promised last week would be donated for programs at the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape and the national Sexual Violence Resource Center.

The extra income will now go toward helping to sanction a Penn State institute that would work in the treatment and prevention In addition to research into, child abuse. The first piece to the institute would be a Center for the Protection of Youngsters to be based at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Erickson claimed.

“We’re taking both steps to ( create ) change instantly as well as a longer-term goal in which our faculty can be exceedingly much involved,” Erickson said.
