Rutgers University yesterday named Robert L. Barchi, president of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, to be its new president as of September 1, two months after the proposed higher education restructuring is to be in place.

Shortly after being chosen unanimously by Rutgers’ Board of Governors, Barchi said he “would hope I would have some input” into whether Rutgers takes control of three units of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and gives its Camden campus to Rowan University.

But Ralph Izzo, chairman of the board of governors, was quick to say the restructuring would be completed two months before Barchi takes office.
