Rutgers-Camden Will Lose Name in Merger, Says Governor Christie

Gov. Chris Christie has shot down the idea of Rutgers-Camden keeping its name after the school merges with Rowan University.

But Christie says he’s not troubled by the involvement of an unelected Democratic powerbroker.

Christie remains insistent that the restructuring of Rutgers, Rowan and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey will happen by July 1.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Democrats George Norcross III and Senate President Stephen Sweeney were among those meeting privately with at least four members of the Rutgers Board of Governors, trying to minimize Rutgers-Camden’s opposition to the plan.

One idea was allowing the school to keep the Rutgers name. Christie told reporters Wednesday that won’t happen. But he has no problem with Norcross playing a role in policymaking discussions.
