A legal analysis of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's proposed higher education reorganization finds one of the most vocal opponents -- Rutgers University's Board of Trustees -- may be powerless to block a merger between the Camden campus and Rowan University.
A major higher education restructuring plan will reach a crossroads in New Jersey this week, with critical votes by Rutgers University's governing boards that could red- or green-light the proposal, and legislation to seal the deal being tweaked for introduction.
Rutgers University officials said Monday a new framework is in place for the university to keep its campus in Camden rather than see it folded into another state university under a plan backed by Gov. Chris Christie.
