Medical School Students Oppose University Merger

An amendment to a plan to overhaul higher education in New Jersey allows the deal to be killed if it jeopardizes the accreditation of a southern Jersey osteopathic school.

About two dozen students who attend the medical school say they want to merge with Rutgers, not Rowan University. The students, all wearing white lab coats, testified Monday before the Assembly Budget Committee.

The students oppose a quasi-merger between Rowan University and Rutgers’ Camden campus and the breakup of UMDNJ. They fear UMDNJ’s School of Osteopathy could lose its accreditation and tuition would rise to cover additional debt.

The budget committee on Monday passed a separate bill asking voters to approve $750 million in higher education borrowing. The money would be used for on-campus buildings and repairs.
