Penn State's 'informal' discussion about possibly going private meets with mixed reactions

14

Gov. Tom Corbett has warned Penn State to open its records or risk losing taxpayer funding. Several weeks after he issued that warning, two Penn State trustees met with Cornell University and discussed the possibility of making a transition to a private university. Karen Peetz, the new chairwoman of Penn State’s board of trustees, talked about the meeting during a presentation at the faculty senate Tuesday. Peetz mentioned the meeting just minutes after she proclaimed that the board was focused on transparency and change. "The Cornell model is of great interest," Peetz said. "But this can’t be rushed. I don’t think that’s going to be a quick decision." A Penn State spokeswoman said that no decisions have been made about a transformation to a private university.
