Faculty Group Applauds Rutgers’ Stance On Merger

A Rutgers University faculty group says the schools’ governing boards have made it clear they do not endorse legislation transferring control of the Camden campus.

The group spoke up against the deal Wednesday before the university’s trustees affirmed their intent to keep control of campuses in Camden, New Brunswick and Newark.

The boards’ affirmation runs counter to legislation that would tie the Camden campus to Rowan and establish a new joint governing board.

The bill is being introduced in the Assembly on Thursday.

 

The Rutgers boards also OK’d talks with the Legislature to see if a deal could be worked out.

Gov. Chris Christie has proposed an ambitious overhaul of Rutgers that changes control of Camden and transfers the University of Medicine and Dentistry to the state university.
