This is the seventh quarterly report of the independent athletics integrity monitor (“Monitor”) pursuant to section III of the Consent Decree between the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”) and The Pennsylvania State University (“Penn State” or the “University”), and article IV of the Athletics Integrity Agreement (“AIA”) among the NCAA, Penn State, and the Big Ten Conference.
This quarter, Rodney A. Erickson retired after more than three decades of service to Penn State and Eric J. Barron took office as the eighteenth president of the University. The University also announced that seven new trustees will join its governing board.
During this reporting period, Penn State continued to make progress on initiatives undertaken in response to recommendations made in the report by Freeh Sporkin & Sullivan LLP dated July 12, 2012 (the “Freeh Report”) and others that were commenced as part of the University’s plan for continuous improvement. Penn State’s Office of Ethics and Compliance adopted a compliance plan approved by a committee of its board of trustees, and the University’s intercollegiate athletics compliance department became the first in the country with five members certified by the National Association for Athletics Compliance (“NAAC”). The athletics integrity officer held her quarterly meetings with the Big Ten Conference and Penn State’s president, and she introduced a voluntary ethics training course for student-athletes developed in collaboration with the University’s Smeal College of Business.
