Brookdale Instructor Questions Necessity of Kean-OCC Partnership

In an editorial appearing in today's Asbury Park Press, Arthur Z. Kamin, an adjunct instructor at Brookdale Community College, criticized Kean University and Ocean County College for a new joint venture which he believes will burden state and county taxpayers. "That's not what Gov. Corzine wants to hear with New Jersey in such deep financial trouble," says Kamin.

The partnership will feature the construction of a $60 million dollar classroom building which will support a variety of degree granting programs. Kamin also points out that the Kean-OCC alliance may duplicate programs already offered by the New Jersey Coastal Communiversity, a consortium of local colleges such as Brookdale Community College and Georgian Court University.
