7,600 responses so far in Penn State culture survey

Some 7,600 Penn State employees and students have taken the university’s cultures and value survey as of Thursday.

The university emailed out the survey last week with the hope of collecting as many responses as possible to measure what’s important and draft a statement of values. The results are expected in the spring.

The Freeh report recommended Penn State examine its culture and alleged the university‘s reverence for football is what led to children being abused on campus by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The survey is being handled by Ethics Resource Center, whose president, Patricia Harned, said survey responses will be collected through the third week of November.

Penn State send the survey to 130,000 people, including faculty, staff, administrators and students.
