UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Members of Penn State's Board of Trustees will participate in a special meeting today (Oct. 26) at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel to consider a resolution to authorize a subcommittee of the Board to approve possible settlements of claims made against the University related to the crimes of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

As a member of the Penn State Board of Trustees, Gene Chaiken knows the details about the rising costs of higher education for the University's nearly 90,000 students. And, as donors of a Trustee Scholarship in the College of the Liberal Arts, he and his wife, Roz, have learned about the life-changing impact of their gift directly from the scholarship students. Both experiences have spurred the Chaikens to give a new $1 million gift to expand their Trustee Scholarship to assist more undergraduates with financial need.

On July 10, Penn State New Kensington Chancellor Kevin Snider told University's Board of Trustees that the New Kensington campus is assuming the leadership role in building public/private partnerships and developing a strategic plan for the future of the campus as well as the Alle-Kiski Valley region. "With our reputation for excellence, Penn State has to be the catalyst for helping to guide this effort," said Snider, whose campus hosted the Board's regular July meeting. "We are the premier higher education institution in this area and the major contributor to the workforce that is vital to economic prosperity of the region." Snider highlighted the movement by the University to become more involved in the communities where its 24 campuses are located by "returning to our roots and becoming a more engaged institution."
