(State College) -- Penn State has completed about 75 percent of the 119 recommendations to strengthen university policies from the former FBI director who led the school's investigation into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Rob Pangborn, the interim executive vice president and provost, has told the university's Faculty Senate the school was on pace in studying or implementing the recommendations released last summer from Louis Freeh. Penn State was expected to provide a detailed progress report later this week.

Freeh's recommendations covered areas including campus safety, training and governance.

Separately, the Faculty Senate is close to delivering to the school's Board of Trustees its recommendations for governance reforms. The power structure and communications between leaders at Penn State have been scrutinized in the fallout from the scandal.
