A bill passed yeterday by a New Jersey Senate committee has the support of Sen. Donald Norcross, but not necessarily the universities it impacts.
A resoultion passed today by the Rowan University Senate expresses support for allowing Rowan and Rutgers-Camden to “retain individual autonomy” should the universities merge.
Member from the committee attended the Rowan meeting.
Legislation being considered would merge the two universities as part of a larger plan to overhaul the state’s higher education system. Both universities oppose the creation of a joint governing board that would have full authority over both institutions.
