Former Penn State President Graham Spanier to Work for U.S. Government, Reports Say

by on April 12, 2012 6:00 AM

Graham Spanier has mostly been silent publicly since being dismissed as Penn State president five months ago.

But late Wednesday, reports surfaced that he will spend the next several months working on a project relating to national security for the U.S. government.

According to an email to the Harrisburg Patriot-News, "This builds on my prior positions working with federal agencies to foster improved cooperation between our nation's national security agencies and other entities," Spanier wrote.

Spanier lost his job Nov. 9 in wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, along with former football coach, the late Joe Paterno.

Spanier remained a tenured faculty member. He is tenured with the faculty titles of university professor and professor of human development and family studies, sociology, demography and family and community medicine.
