“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.
“Rutgers-Camden Chancellor Wendell Pritchett said in a statement Monday that the plan would give his campus more administrative and budgetary autonomy from Rutgers’ main campus in New Brunswick. The school also would ‘engage in a deep and meaningful partnership with Rowan University,’ Pritchett said.
“The plan, which was first reported by The Star-Ledger of Newark, is an alternative to one to merge Rutgers’ Camden campus into Rowan as part of a broader reorganization of higher education institutions in the state. Christie, a Republican, has said he wants the changes to take effect by July 1 though it’s certain that implementing the details would take well beyond then, possibly several years.”
