These people need to understand that if they really are trying to make their University look better, it's best to not keep this thing in the spotlight for perpetuity.
Let me preface this again by saying that I am not a member of this group, but this group would like to exonerate the university as a whole and place the blame where they believe the fault truly belongs... the individual people that failed to do the right thing. Without knowing who knew what or what exactly happened, it's hard to place the blame in the appropriate places. I don't think they are trying to make the University look better, they just want to know the truth, and HOPE that getting to the truth will make the University look better.
This probably sums it up for most of us. I think to date we have been deprived of the truth, and subjected to a Board of Trustees that cares more about their own hides than the truth or the University. Why else settle with alleged victims before it is ever proven in court that anyone at PSU was culpable? That action alone shows they were not interested in the truth, and would rather cause prejudicial harm to those whose names have been sullied or charged.
I dare say as long as the Board of Trustees continues down such a path, and God bless Al Clemens for having the guts to speak up and put his money where his mouth is in his resignation, more and more alumni will want to know what truth they have been hiding.
On a side note, what to make of the hiring of Dr. Barron? I really don't know anything about him.
