Probe highlights politics' ties to state universities
Philadelphia Inquirer | 07/14/2005 | Probe highlights politics' ties to state universities: "The exact scope of a wide-ranging state probe of public universities remains murky, but it has opened a window into the connections between politics and state institutions of higher education." In the case of Rowan University, the only South Jersey-based school of the five state universities in the State Commission of Investigation probe, the 15-member board has slowly been packed with Democrats. The SCI will not confirm any investigation. However, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Rutgers University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Ramapo College have all received letters requesting information.
