HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania's auditor general has announced a review of Penn State University's performance, focusing on governance, safety and tuition across its 24 campuses.
Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said Tuesday that his audit will revisit former auditor general Jack Wagner's recommendations to the university following the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case, as well as compliance with state and federal guidelines. He says it won't rehash the university-commissioned 2012 report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh.
The review to cover university operations since January 2013 will also look at the structure of Penn State's board of trustees and university efforts to stem tuition increases. DePasquale says Penn State has pledged its full cooperation.
The state has previously audited the University of Pittsburgh, among other higher education institutions.
