University statement on pleas

Penn State has issued a statement following guilty pleas by former University administrators Gary Schultz and Tim Curley.

UNIVERSITY STATEMENT:

"We are, of course, deeply concerned with any action or inaction that might endanger the welfare of a child. Our focus has been, and remains, on the victims of child abuse. Over the past five years, the university has put in place strong educational programs, major new research initiatives to combat child maltreatment and best-in-practice ethics and compliance programs, all of which are meant to ensure that wrongdoing is reported, and that children everywhere are protected."
