At a contentious town hall forum yesterday, Rutgers President Robert Barchi took questions about the lingering controversy over abuses by basketball coach Mike Rice, and his plans to merge the school with other New Jersey campuses. Governor Christie defended Barchi's response to the Rice scandal. Karen Cerulo, professor of sociology at Rutgers University and Terri Langford, investigative reporter at New Jersey Public Radio, discuss where faculty and students think the university should go next.
