(State College) -- Trustees at Penn State University have received an update on the search for a new president.
The trustees met privately on Friday and said afterward they plan to pick a new leader by the time Penn State President Rodney Erickson retires on June 30th.
The Board of Trustees had scheduled a public meeting, apparently for the purpose of voting on a new president, only to call it off a few hours later. The trustees said in a statement Friday that the public meeting was cancelled to give themselves more time to consider possible candidates.
A search committee has been seeking a successor to Erickson, who assumed the post amid the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
This story has been updated from an earlier version.
