Penn State was fined $2.4 million by the Department of Education on Thursday as part of a report which found that the university routinely failed to be transparent about reported crimes on campus from 1998 to 2011. That period of time coincided with a grand jury investigation of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of children. It was a scathing rebuke of how the university violated the Clery Act, named after a Lehigh University student who was raped and murdered in 1986. The law says universities must compile crime stats and be transparent about reported rapes and sexual assaults on campus.
