have all been following the work of the Governor's Commission on
Health Science, Education and Training and its study of the future
of New Jersey's three public research universities: UMDNJ, Rutgers
and NJIT. The Commission's Review, Planning and Implementation Steering
Committee has been meeting for the past several months to discuss
the proposed restructuring. The Steering Committee established three
regional University Committees to develop plans for a restructured
university system. Draft reports - north, central and south - have
been submitted and are available as PDF files on the UMDNJ web site.
I encourage you to submit your comments on the reports by email
to firstname.lastname@example.org. They
will be directed to the appropriate UMDNJ representative on these
committees for consideration as the discussion moves forward. I
will continue to keep the University community informed.
