Christie Seeks to Merge Edison State College into Rutgers U

I got an email today from Thomas A Edison State College announcing to alums that Governor Christie is proposing to merge Edison into the Rutgers University system.

The letter says, in part:

The College first learned about the proposal just yesterday. We have expressed our concern about its potential impact on our students to the governor and the legislature and expect to continue these discussions over the coming weeks.

The school hopes to remain independent, of course. Merging such a unique institution into the Rutgers system would kill it, which would be sad for all concerned.

The Christie budget is nothing but an assault on our beloved institutions.
