PSU board calls off special meeting

By: The Associated Press and WJAC Web Staff

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. --

Penn State University trustees have postponed a meeting at which time they were expected to vote on a new president.

The board said in a legal notice published Wednesday that the purpose of the special meeting -- which was slated for Friday -- was to consider the resolution of a personnel matter. The board's website says it is responsible for only one position at the university: the president.

In abruptly postponing the meeting indefinitely Wednesday afternoon, the board said the action was necessary to allow for further consideration of the matter.

The board also scrubbed a private executive session of the trustees on Thursday night, but still plans to meet in an executive session Friday morning. The meeting is not open to the public.

A group of trustees has been working with a headhunter firm to choose a successor to President Rodney Erickson, who plans to retire by June.

Ex-President Graham Spanier was ousted in November 2011 after Sandusky, a former assistant football coach, was arrested.
