Penn State has launched a new website as part of its ongoing effort to improve communications and respond to questions stemming from the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
The new website, progress.psu.edu, is replacing the previous “Openness” one, the university announced Monday.
According to the university, the goal is to increase communications with stakeholders such as students, alumni, staff, local communities and members of the media.
“This is the next iteration of our information resource that is designed to anchor communications discussing difficult issues from the last year, including ongoing legal matters, in addition to providing updates on the initiatives we've put in place to address the serious issue of child abuse,” President Rodney Erickson said in an announcement.
The website includes information such as the cost of the scandal at Penn State and the status of the investigation the university commissioned former FBI director Louis Freeh to conduct.
