A Compromise on the Rutgers-Rowan Merger?

In a statement on Monday, Rutgers-Camden Chancellor Wendell Pritchett said that there is an alternative plan to the merger of Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University supported by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He said the alternative plan would call for Rutgers-Camden to have a significant relationship with Rowan, but that it would also call for Rutgers’ main campus in New Brunswick to loosen the reins a bit on Rutgers-Camden. Lawmakers and school officials are sorting out the details of the new plan, which has not been endorsed by Governor Christie. [NBC Philadelphia]
