CUNNINGHAM STATEMENT ON ANNOUNCEMENT OF BARCHI TO SUCCEED McCORMICK AS RUTGERS PRESIDENT

 

 

TRENTON –; Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham, D-Hudson, Chairwoman of the Senate Higher Education Committee, made the following statement regarding the announcement of Dr. Robert Barchi being named the 20th President of Rutgers University:

“I am pleased with the appointment of Dr. Barchi to head Rutgers University.  During this time of transition for New Jersey’s higher education system, I am confident that Dr. Barchi will be an advocate for the students, faculty and staff of Rutgers.

“With the expected acquisition of Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey and the School of Public Health by Rutgers University, Dr. Barchi’s knowledge and experience as a neurologist, a professor and researcher in the medical field, and most recently the President of Thomas Jefferson University, one of the nation’s most respected health science universities, will prove to be a great asset to Rutgers.

“Additionally Dr. Barchi bears an excellent record as a successful fundraiser at Thomas Jefferson University and as a strong academic advocate as Provost of the University of Pennsylvania – skills that will help Rutgers to continue its tradition as a public higher education institution with a national reputation for excellence.  

“I thank Dr. Richard McCormick for his years of dedication to Rutgers University, and I look forward to working with Dr. Barchi in the months and years ahead as we strive to provide an even more sound and successful public university system here in New Jersey.”;
