Delran graduate Erica "Boo" Schubert, The Inquirer's South Jersey female athlete of the year in 1999, is transferring from the University of Florida to Rutgers after two seasons of playing for the Gators' soccer team. Schubert will not have to sit out a year after receiving her release from Florida. In soccer, a player can transfer once without sitting out if the school the player is leaving signs a release form. Schubert is transferring because she suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder and feels it can be better treated closer to home.

Rutgers-Camden chancellor Phoebe A. Haddon strides through the Fine Arts Building in search of someone with access to the Digital Studies Center. As she whisks me along on a brisk but chatty campus tour - walking or talking, Haddon doesn't wander off-message - every employee we encounter is gracious and helpful to the new chancellor. Even if, Haddon says with a wry smile, "they don't know who she is sometimes. " That was not the case with her predecessor, Wendell Pritchett, who became a local hero in 2012 for fending off Trenton's effort to have Rutgers-Camden absorbed by Rowan University.

A new diabetes research project aims to develop medicines by marrying chemistry expertise from Rowan University with animal physiology knowledge at Rutgers-Camden. Researchers at Rowan have begun work on some promising medicines, while Rutgers-Camden professors hope to examine plant-based folk medicines from Africa. Rowan scholars have the background to explore the mechanisms behind the medicines, while Rutgers-Camden will focus on testing them on diabetic mice. "We need each other, because the people at Rowan are unable to test the results of their medicines on the physiology," said Joseph V. Martin, a biology professor and associate dean at Rutgers-Camden, who is one of the primary researchers on the project.

The Rutgers University board of governors approved a universitywide physical plan Thursday, including a vision for its Camden campus that includes accommodating more students and new academic programs. "What the plan calls for now is increasing the overall footprint of the campus by about a third," said Antonio M. Calcado, Rutgers vice president for facilities.
