Penn State advisory group chosen for Freeh recommendations

A 10-person advisory council has been named to provide input to the Penn State Board of Trustees as suggested by the report issued in July by former FBI director Louis Freeh.

The Freeh Advisory Council has been assembled from individuals from across the university to address the 119 recommendations in the Freeh report, which was part of an independent investigation after the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The university has completed one-third of the recommendations, which include addressing safety, governance and misconduct reporting, according to a university news release.

The following is a list of the 10 individuals invited by university President Rodney Ericson and Board of Trustees Chairwoman Karen Peetz:

Larry C. Backer, chairman, University Faculty Senate and professor of law; Linda Caldwell, NCAA faculty representative and professor of recreation, parks and tourism management and human development and family studies; Ann Crouter, dean, College of Health and Human Development; Charmelle Green, associate director of Intercollegiate Athletics; Crystal Hubler, chairwoman, University Staff Advisory Council; Courtney Lennartz, president, University Park Undergraduate Association; Jonathan M. Light, president, Teamsters Local Union No. 8; John May, chief compliance officer, Penn State Hershey Medical Center; David Rench, vice president of external affairs, Graduate Student Association; and Karen Wiley Sandler, chancellor, Penn State Abington.
