New Rutgers President Apparently Selected

Rutgers University officials had refused to say who the school’s new president would be, saying only that the appointment would be considered Wednesday during a special Board of Governors meeting.

However, the Star-Ledger of Newark reports that a photo of Robert Barchi was briefly uploaded Tuesday to the Rutgers media relations website. It was removed after a Star-Ledger reporter inquired about the photo, which carried a file name that said “Barchi approved.”

University officials would not comment on the appointment or the photo. But two sources with knowledge of the selection process later told the newspaper that Barchi was the candidate going before the board for approval.
