Penn State President Graham Spanier and Executive Vice President and Provost Rodney Erickson plan to meet with the Board of Governors of the Dickinson School of Law to discuss the future of the institution. If the law school's Board of Governors decides that the institution should be relocated to the University Park campus, it would be costly.
To make the move, Penn State would need to construct a new building for the school, which could cost as much as $60 million.
The move wouldn't be uncommon among all law schools that are ranked high nationally.
Any decision to move the law school rests with the law school's Board of Governors. The board has not yet discussed the matter. If they approved the move, Penn State's Board of Trustees would also have to approve it.
WORKFORCE INVESTMENT BOARDMEMBER TO VISIT PSU Fred Dedrick, executive director of the Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board, will visit the University today as part of Pennsylvania Health Careers Awareness Week.
The statewide event is aimed at encouraging Pennsylvanians, especially men and women 18 to 35, to consider a career in health care.
Dedrick is visiting to meet with faculty and staff to learn about the University's health-related research, outreach, workforce education and development policy research and health education programs, including continuing education.
Current and prospective students and community members are invited to attend the open house, which will be held from noon to 6 p.m. in the Living Center, 110 Henderson Building.
