McGreevey Proposes Merger of Rutgers, UMDNJ, NJIT
The Star-Ledger is reporting that Governor McGreevey announced his merger plan for the state's universities yesterday. We discussed the possibility of such a merger earlier this year on CTDATA.com.
So little is known about the proposal, that it's hard to know how anyone could take a position on it at this point. The timing of the announcement, however, is curious. It comes very quickly after Governor McGreevey got heavily involved in the Torricelli-Lautenberg candidacy "transition", and could take the state-wide media's focus off of that issue for a few days. If you are a supporter of the Democratic Party in the Garden State, you might consider this a shrewd move.
