News in Brief

Self-Report of NCAA Violation

Before leaving office as provost, Dr. Stanley Chodorow issued a Self-Report to the Ivy League detailing a violation of NCAA rules during football season "as a result of a student-athlete practicing and competing while not enrolled full-time." The report, based on investigation by a faculty-administrative team, concludes that the violation resulted from misunderstanding-but Penn forfeits eight games; recommends that the Ivy League vacate the athlete's 1997 honors; and outlines steps to be taken with administrators involved.

Public Safety's Move

The University Division of Public Safety's mailing address has changed from 3914 Locust Walk to:

Division of Public Safety
4026-40 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104-3020.

All mail for the Division should be addressed to the new address, although the Special Services Unit will, due to the nature of its work, advertise its physical location as 4026 Chestnut Street so that customers can choose to visit their part of the building directly without using the Police lobby if necessary.

Also, the Communications Center will temporarily remain physically at 3914 Locust Walk, but this should not affect delivery of mail to the new address, said George Clisby, Director of Police Administration.
