Spoiler Alert: Really bad.
No doubt your fellow trustees will crucify you for bringing this sad situation to the public’s attention. I recommend you remind them that the first step in fixing any problem is to identify the problem. The leaders at Penn State, specifically the past two Presidents and the BOT that tried to place blame for the Sandusky scandal on the football program, have driven a once respected public university into the gutter by every measurable metric. Thank you for standing up to the naïveté and hubris you encounter every day. We can only hope that the new President has the gumption to stand up to the weak board and woke faculty she’s inherited. Significant changes needed to dig the university out of this hole.
