Penn State trustees to discuss Freeh report in Hershey

(Hershey) -- Penn State's internal report into how university officials handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal is among the topics expected when the trustees meet over two days. 

The university's board will convene today in Dauphin County, and is expected also to consider changes to its own make-up.

The trustees' governance structure has been criticized for having the university president serve as a voting member, as well as the participation of the governor.

Penn State commissioned an examination of the scandal by a group led by former FBI director Louis Freeh.

It's been a target for critics since its release last summer, and the family of former coach Joe Paterno recently issued its own response.

Sandusky, a former assistant under Paterno, is serving prison time after being convicted of child sexual abuse.
