Subject: Higher Education Task Force Report Executive Orders
The Committee is specifically charged with making recommendations regarding the structure of medical education in New Brunswick-Piscataway, Newark, and South Jersey. With respect to Newark, the Committee is to consider whether we, NJIT, should start our own medical school and whether UMDNJ’s schools in Newark should become part of any of the other senior public universities in Newark.
Because the work of the Committee directly impacts higher education, particularly NJIT and medical education in Newark, we would anticipate having input to the work of the Committee. We will keep you informed as implementation of Executive Orders 51 and 52 proceed.
