Responsibility to our community is far from over. Instead of ignoring the scandal or trying to pass blame, the Penn State family must work together and cultivate change. One way to start this process is transitioning the first Blue Out into an annual event. Stuart and I have partnered with One Heart: Penn State Students Against the Sexual Abuse of Children to ensure student leadership long after we graduate. Blue Outs will not be punishments, but a way to reconcile our membership in this community and ensure that Penn State becomes a safer place for future generations. It is an occasion meant to foster engagement, compassion, and integrity.
