Penn State president Erickson to discuss transparency

The Penn State Faculty Senate will hear from President Rod Erickson and discuss how it can support efforts to enhance the university’s transparency and shared governance during a meeting at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in Kern Building on campus.

On Nov. 18, the Faculty Senate approved a resolution calling for an independent special committee, a majority of whose members are not affiliated with the university. The resolution also called for a review of administrative and Senate policies on reporting procedures.

The question for discussion will be: “How might the Senate provide collaborative leadership (with students, faculty, administration and trustees) to enhance transparency across the university and the effectiveness of shared governance?”
