This week, Penn State University announced that Cynthia Baldwin, its first general counsel, is stepping down. She had held the position of PSU GC, vice president, and chief legal officer since January 2010. According to a statement posted on the university’s Penn State Live site:
When Cynthia Baldwin accepted the position of full-time vice president, general counsel, and chief legal officer for Penn State in January 2010, it was with the understanding that she would serve in a transitional role to help establish and organize the office, manage Penn State’s legal function, and pave the way for a permanent general counsel to be hired following a national search. . . Baldwin said the time has come for her to transition. The office has been up and running for some time now, and is ready to be taken over by a permanent general counsel.
