Excuse me, who do you think should help us save Rutgers-Camden?
Uh, no, they don’t mean you, Gov. Christie. You’re not always the Boss. Sometimes, particularly in Jersey, there’s a higher authority.
Some of the folks in the Rutgers-Camden community coalition of students, faculty, staff and community have produced a video they’re hoping Bruce Springsteen sees. They want him to speak out, or sing out, against the merger Chris Christie and Donald Norcross intend between Rutgers-Camden and Rowan Universities; a merger they say would cannibalize highly-rated Rutgers’ southern outpost and reduce the value of its degrees.
Enjoy, and if you know Bruce, send this his way, and take action below:
Against the Ru-Ro merger?
There’s a petition at the R2RMERGE website, against the merger, and portals to the effort’s Twitter, Facebook, blog (currently featuring “Who’s an idiot now?”) and press and info links, and contact info for New Jersey legislators, set up so you can make a lobbying call directly from your computer.
