Barchi to work on immigration at national level
Because University President Robert L. Barchi could not make it to the University Senate meeting Friday, a chairperson read his report on the strategic planning initiative, according to Pavel Sokolov, representative for the Rutgers Business School Governing Association.
Sokolov, Rutgers University Student Assembly Treasurer, said the report indicated that the strategic planning initiative was going well, and that Barchi would be meeting with RUSA on April 11 to continue dialogue with the students.
Sokolov, a Rutgers Business School junior, said Barchi’s report also indicated he would continue working with federal legislators to make sure comprehensive immigration reform is passed on a national level.
The Senate voted to extend the add-drop period due to Rosh Hashanah taking place early next semester, he said. The period has been extended by two days to allow students observing the religious holiday more time to decide if they need to add or drop a course.
