Penn State Risks Losing AccreditationAug 15, 2012
Associated Press -- The Middle States Commission on Higher Education has placed Penn State’s accreditation status “in jeopardy” following the release of the Freeh report into the way school officials handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case. Penn State keeps its accreditation while the commission more closely examines PSU’s governmental compliance, fiscal solvency, and integrity. Penn State is considered a Public Ivy and is expected to pass the commission’s educational standards and keep its regional accreditation. Loss of accreditation would be a death knell for the university, one of the oldest state schools in the country. For more, read Penn State Receives Accreditation Warning.
