Availability: Ready to download

The connection between the Penn State community, the Sandusky cover-up, and the football team owned and operated by the Penn State trustees presents the trustees with important questions about the University's purpose. Yet in the months after the Sandusky cover-up becomes front-page news, the trustees refuse to address these questions. Instead they stage a pageant calculate The connection between the Penn State community, the Sandusky cover-up, and the football team owned and operated by the Penn State trustees presents the trustees with important questions about the University's purpose. Yet in the months after the Sandusky cover-up becomes front-page news, the trustees refuse to address these questions. Instead they stage a pageant calculated to shield themselves from these questions. Penn State's Other Cover-up presents a documentary case study of that pageant. The book also sheds light on the compliance, fiduciary duty, conflict of interest, and risk management issues that drive the trustees to produce it. At first the pageant impresses. Ultimately it fools no one. The pageant reveals that the trustees compromise the University’s mission and values in the name of football. The pageant reveals that the trustees rewrite truth in the name of football. The pageant reveals that the University sends its graduates into today’s broken economy with a shove toward a shallow value set and a flawed skill set, and, in the name of football and football’s cash flow, the trustees are okay with that. The trustees’ neglect of mission, truth and students—all for a game—is distressing. But for a nation whose fate hinges in part on higher education cultivating graduates who can survive and rejuvenate an economy of unprecedented weaknesses, the trustees’ game-driven pageant of neglect is not the bad news in this story. The bad news is that Penn State’s trustees are not the only trustees working on the pageant.
