The "Save Rutgers" lawn signs that blanketed the state last year could be popping up again. Because Rutgers University - specifically, its Camden campus - is under attack once more, alumni say.
About 60 members of the Rutgers-Camden Alumni Association filled the main room at an Italian restaurant in Cherry Hill on Tuesday night, joined by their outspoken guests: university trustee George A. Rears, Rutgers-Camden history professor Andrew Shankman, and Rutgers School of Law-Camden professor Robert F. Williams and associate dean Adam Scales.
Charles Ivory, association president, urged alumni to mobilize, putting up protest signs.
"Rutgers-Camden serves the entire state, not just Camden . . . and it's part of the Rutgers community," said Rears, who answered questions about the school's two governing bodies - the board of trustees and board of governors. "The issue I'm here tonight to be a representative for is about the board of trustees and the governance of the university."
