The University Presidency and Rushing to Injustice

An enlightening conversation with Dr. Graham Spanier , President Emeritus of Pennsylvania State University and Chancellor Emeritus of University of Nebraska.

Dr. Spanier will recount the unlikely story of a life and career turned upside down almost overnight in a firestorm of breaking news about a retired Penn State assistant football coach that unraveled into a nightmare of false accusations and labyrinthine legal proceedings stemming from a scandal surrounding a man Spanier barely knew. Spanier will discuss his new book, "In the Lions’ Den," a personal memoir that reveals how and why a university and many individuals, including legendary football coach Joe Paterno, were unfairly targeted in a colossal miscarriage of justice. Book signing to follow event.
