DUNMORE, Pa. – The Penn State Board of Trustees convenes for its regularly scheduled July meeting at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Worthington Scranton campus.

Agenda items include setting tuition for the 2012-13 schoool year – Penn State president Rodney Erickson is expected to request the lowest tuition increase in decades, at 2.9 percent.

Announced at a news conference in the Hilton Scranton on Thursday, the board will also vote on term limits, an controversial topic since the Penn State and Jerry Sandusky scandal hit in November.

Thursday's news conference was held for the board to react to Louis' Freeh's investigative report of Penn State, which was released 9 a.m. Penn State officials said Friday's meeting is a "normal board meeting," so it is unclear if the Freeh report will again be discusses.

Ken Frazier, chair of the special investigations task force, the committee that worked most closely with Freeh, will give a committee report. will have live coverage through the afternoon and the meeting will be streamed live on
