(Harrisburg) -- A vote on millions of dollars in proposed borrowing and a protest march are expected as Penn State's trustees meet in State College.

The trustees are scheduled to consider a variety of topics at the afternoon session.

One is a $750 million borrowing package for a variety of university needs.

The university's athletic department is exploring the possibility of borrowing $30 million dollars to help cover the cost of NCAA sanctions imposed in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case.

Outside the meeting, supporters of the late Joe Paterno plan what they are calling a "march for truth'' to protest allegations in a university-commissioned report that the longtime Penn State football coach helped cover up Sandusky's crimes.
