In May, Governor Chris Christie signed into executive order a task force to be lead by former Governor Tom Kean. The purpose of this task force was to analyze the structure of higher education in New Jersey, namely UMDNJ and Rutgers. The task force was charged the responsibility of making recommendations to the governor and state legislature regarding the potential restructuring of higher education in New Jersey. The purpose of the task force was multi-fold: to make higher education more affordable for students, save costs on a state-wide level, and most importantly, create an educational system designed to encourage the best and the brightest to stay in New Jersey.
Of note, the task force was to investigate whether or not merging schools such as UMDNJ, Rutgers, and NJIT would be an effective solution. This idea, while rejected in years past, has gained an increasing popularity within the state ranks and is also going to be discussed in the report.
Today, the Kean commission released its report. The recommendations for UMDNJ include, but are not limited to:
Merging New Jersey Medical School with Rutgers-Newark and NJIT, creating the University of New Jersey (UNJ) - North.
Merging Robert Wood Johnson Medical School with Rutgers-New Brunswick.
The new TheHeinrichManeuver.net is now up and running. The cosmetic changes are only a small portion of what is different -- the new site contains a number of improvements and new features, including user-specific profiles and preferences, a cleaner-looking bookswap, and an easier-to-use password manager.
All currently-registered users of THM will have to click "request a new password," as your usernames and information have been ported to a new database, but your passwords were not due to security reasons. Once you get your new password, you can reset it to whatever you'd like and then you should be able to use the site as you did in the past.
