Statement of ACE President Molly Corbett Broad on Departure of Penn State University President Graham Spanier

November 09, 2011

 

"Graham Spanier is a good colleague who is widely admired and respected within the higher education community. He has nearly single-handedly led Penn State University in its transition from a solid regional institution to a university renowned for its teaching, research and scholarship.

Graham's departure comes under extremely sad and still uncertain circumstances, but it enables Penn State to begin to move past this crisis. My thoughts and support are with the entire university community at this deeply difficult and troubling time."
