New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, left, and Dr. Sol J. Barer, right, chair of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) advisory committee, listen in Trenton, N.J., Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2012, as Gov. Chris Christie outlines his plans after the committee's recommendations for the schools. Christie announced that he wants to see the Rutgers-Camden campus become part of Rowan University and shed the Rutgers name as part of a major reconfiguration of New Jersey's public higher-education system. Rowan University in Glassboro, N.J., would be elevated to a major research university under the plan to give it control of the Rutgers campus in Camden, which also houses a law school and business school.
