PHILADELPHIA — Anaccreditation warning issuedto Penn State is serious andnecessary given the issuesraised by a recent child sex-abuse scandal, but the schoolis unlikely to lose the all-important designation, expertssaid Tuesday.They also expect the uni-versity to comply quicklywith demands to show thatits governance, finances andintegrity meet standards set byits accreditation agency, theMiddle States Commission onHigher Education.“This is an entirely appro-priate and anticipated action byMiddle States given the strate-gic importance of voluntarypeer review,” said AmericanCouncil on Education presi-dent Molly Corbett Broad.“It’s really the basis onwhich public accountability isachieved in American highereducation.”The Philadelphia-basedMiddle States Commissionissued the warning last weekbased on the school’s han-dling of molestation allega-tions against Jerry Sandusky, aformer assistant football coachconvicted in June of sexuallyabusing 10 boys.Concerns include whetherPenn State trustees providesufficient oversight of theadministration, the strength of the university’s ethical stan-dards and the school’s compli-ance with government poli-cies, such as those requiringcampus crime reports, saidMiddle States spokesmanRichard Pokrass.The commission also wantsthe school to address its finan-cial status in light of a $60million penalty imposed bythe NCAA and any lawsuitsfrom Sandusky’s victims.Penn State must submit areport to the agency by Sept.30. A small team of accreditorswould then visit the school inState College.“The university has beenvery cooperative,” Pokrasssaid Tuesday. “The leader-ship of the university is awareof what the concerns are andhave been taking very positivesteps.”Penn State is now one of about 15 schools in the Mid-Atlantic region with a warn-ing.Most institutions work theirway off warning status withina year to 18 months, Pokrasssaid. Those that don’t are puton probation.Schools lose accreditationafter two years of noncompli-ance, starting with the warning.Students cannot use federalfunds — including Pell grantsand government loans — toattend unaccredited schools.Penn State stressed that itremains accredited and thatacademic programs are notbeing questioned.“This action has nothingto do with the quality of edu-cation our students receive,”Blannie Bowen, vice provostfor academic affairs, said in astatement.

GENEVA (AP) — SyrianPresident Bashar Assad’sforces and pro-governmentshabiha fighters have perpe-trated war crimes and crimesagainst humanity on Syriancivilians, a U.N. expert panelconcluded today in a reportthat provides in chilling detailfurther evidence of a conflictspiraling out of control.The panel appointed bythe U.N.’s 47-nation HumanRights Council blamed thegovernment and allied militiafor the killing of more than100 civilians in the villageof Houla in May, nearly half of them children, and saidthe murders, unlawful killing,torture, sexual violence andindiscriminate attacks “indi-cate the involvement at thehighest levels of the armedand security forces and thegovernment.”The panel also concludedin its final report today tothe Geneva-based councilthat anti-government armedgroups committed war crimes,including murder, extrajudi-cial killings and torture, but ata lesser frequency and scale.Its release came hoursafter a bomb exploded in theSyrian capital of Damascusoutside a hotel where U.N.observers are staying. Thebomb was attached to a fueltruck and wounded at leastthree people, Syrian stateTV reported. Activists alsoreported fighting near thegovernment headquarters andthe Iranian embassy, both inDamascus, along with clashesin different parts of Syria.The expert panel appoint-ed to probe abuses in Syriahas had hardly any access toSyria, with only its chairmanallowed into Damascus. Mostof the report, which coversthe period between Feb. 15and July 20, was conductedduring field interviews and inGeneva with Syrian refugeesoutside the country.The panel conducted 1,062interviews, but emphasizedtheir lack of ability to carryout their U.N. mandate withinSyria hampered their investi-gation.The commission is head-ed by Brazilian diplomatand professor Paulo SergioPinheiro and also includesKaren Koning AbuZayd, aU.S. citizen and former headof UNRWA, the U.N. agencythat aids Palestinian refugees.
