Thomas Edison State College Alums and Students Asked to Take Action

Thomas Edison State College asks that alumni and supporters tell their stories to the governor and assembly members as part of an effort to keep the school from being merged with Rutgers. Here is part of the email I received from George Pruitt, President of the school:

As most of our alumni and supporters already know, the merger proposal was not initiated by either institution. We firmly believe it would destroy the mission of our College, deny educational opportunities to thousands of adult students, increase the cost of education and in no way enhance the economic development of our region.

Please join us by contacting Governor Christie and your local representatives in the state Senate and Assembly and share your story of how Thomas Edison State College changed your life and how the merger will take away opportunities for adult learners that were so critical to you. You also have the option of using a prepared message.

Ideally, we would like you to call and e-mail the governor and your local representatives and share your personal story of how Thomas Edison State College impacted your life. 

Write to the governor and your assembly members
