Rowan, Rutgers changes going into effect (7/1/13)

PISCATAWAY - Rutgers University is adding two medical schools, Rowan is becoming a research university and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey is dissolving.

All those changes became official today as a reorganization of public higher education in New Jersey took effect.

Ceremonies were scheduled at various universities to mark the transition. Among the festivities was a ringing of the Old Queens Bell, a part of Rutgers tradition.

The change is intended to clear the way for Rutgers to become a major center for medical sciences research and grow the number of seats in universities in New Jersey.
