Penn State student governments respond to Jerry Sandusky trial verdict

Penn State Student Governments' Response to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Gerald Sandusky Trial Verdict

The student governments of Penn State University grieve for those who have been victimized by child sexual abuse. We commend the courage and strength that it took for the victims to come forward and testify. We hope that the verdict provides a sense of justice for those who were affected including the victims, their families and the community at large.

As student leaders, we will remain vigilant in our efforts to maintain the values upon which our University was founded.
