UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Today (Dec. 15) the Centre County District Attorney issued a grand jury report related to Penn State’s Greek life organizations. Penn State officials were only permitted to see a limited portion of the report in advance. Below is the University’s statement related to the grand jury report. “The Penn State community continues to mourn the death of Timothy Piazza and all victims of hazing across the nation. The University will not forget these tragic deaths, as we continue our efforts to change the Greek-life culture. Our new safety and reform initiatives represent a significant departure from the Greek system’s broken self-governance model and provide a pathway to improving student safety here and nationwide. The University is seeing the Grand Jury recommendations today for the first time, and I have asked the University’s Greek Response team, a group of senior administrators, to carefully review the recommendations to see how they may further inform our aggressive efforts already taken. Penn State strongly disagrees with many characterizations of the University and our record of action as presented by the District Attorney, but we remain deeply committed to turning the pain and anguish of this tragedy into reforms that continue to improve the safety and well-being of our students,” said President Eric J. Barron.
