South Jersey is home to 30 percent of the state’s total population, yet it has only 12.5 percent of the state’s total undergraduate seats. Each year approximately 35,000 high school graduates leave New Jersey, many of them from our region, to attend college elsewhere.

Let’s keep our talented high school graduates right here. The creation of a combined, single university can accomplish that goal.

In addition to the difference in undergraduate seats and the outbound migration of students seeking degrees elsewhere, other inequities exist — financial inequities between the “north” and “south.”
