Thirty-nine candidates will vie for three open alumni seats on Pennsylvania State University's 32-member board of trustees, the university announced this week.
That's a crowded field, but not as crowded as last year, when more than 80 candidates competed for three seats in the aftermath of the child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
This week, ballot positions for the election were determined through a drawing. Penn State alumni will be able to obtain ballots for the election online beginning April 10, Paula R. Ammerman, associate secretary of the board, said in a statement.
Biographical information and statements by each candidate will be available on March 18 on a "Meet the Candidates Page" at http://www.psu.edu/trustees/index.html
