Like many, Rowan University felt the impact of Hurricane Irene.
So when mold problem cropped up in the campus townhouses, the university hired a contractor to investigate.
Environmental/health investigator Edward Knorr pinpointed the problem and made recommendations. From there, his account of what’s followed differs greatly from the university’s story.
The Gloucester County Times has a feature story today detailing several months’ worth of back-and-forth between both sides. Knorr says Rowan ignored his recommendations and banned him from campus. Rowan says the university followed policy and brought in a separate contractor to address the issue, hitting a sour note with Knorr.
In the middle of it all, an epidemiologist has stepped in to determine whether students are in any real danger.
