In September, Spotlight PA’s Wyatt Massey launched an official Penn State Transparency Tracker to better inform the public of all the ways the university was choosing not to provide data and information.

The first installment about why Penn State created a new VP position during a hiring freeze prompted Penn State’s new president to explain her hiring practices. Other stories have highlighted a lack of transparency around annual pay for the head football coach, use of Penn State’s private jets, and missing data on arrests and use of force by university police.

Now, we’ve launched a dedicated Transparency Tracker page to showcase our work and the ongoing effort all in one place. Plus, it’s easy to send tips or questions directly to Massey.
This vital accountability reporting can only continue with your support. Make a gift to Spotlight PA and help us keep powerful institutions like Penn State honest and transparent. As a special bonus, all gifts will be DOUBLED thanks to a generous match from the Benter Foundation.
