A potential compromise that would preserve Rutgers-Camden is taking shape in closed-door discussions among state political leaders and Rutgers officials, according to several people familiar with the talks.

The proposal, coming amid fierce opposition to a higher-education overhaul backed by Republican Gov. Christie, would keep the Camden campus within the Rutgers University system and give it and Rutgers-Newark greater autonomy.

Though details are still being discussed, officials are talking about terminating control of the satellite campuses by the Rutgers flagship in New Brunswick and setting up independent boards to manage the finances and operations in Newark and Camden
