The Buzz about Integration


Gov. Christie signed legislation that will bring about the integration of Rutgers and UMDNJ on July 1.

Take a look at what has been said in New Jersey about the impending integration of Rutgers with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey:

“Rutgers was already an outstanding school; now it’s going to be a powerhouse.” – Gov. Chris Christie

“What’s going on right now in trying to put together the med school and Rutgers will turn Rutgers into one of the top ten research universities in the entire country. It will make Rutgers something that every one of us is going to be proud of. It’s going to take Rutgers from where it is now, which is good, and make it great.”  – Gov. Thomas H. Kean

“Integrating UMDNJ into Rutgers … is extremely important for the institution as well as for New Jersey.”  – Gov. James J. Florio

“We will be well-positioned to dramatically improve our ability to win federal grants, attract top-flight faculty and students, expand health care options for New Jersey residents and foster economic growth.”  – Ralph Izzo, chair, Board of Governors, Rutgers University
