Rowan University

Federal Monitor

In December of 2005, the Board of Trustees of UMDNJ entered into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement with United States Attorney Christopher Christie. As part of this agreement a Federal Monitor, Judge Herbert Stern, was appointed to provide necessary oversight of key aspects of the University's operations. As a result of the work of the Federal Monitor's office, as series of public reports were issued, copies of which can be accessed below.

After two years, the US Attorney determined that sufficient systemic changes had occurred across UMDNJ, such that the DPA was no longer necessary. In December of 2007, a letter outlining his recommendations was forwarded to the leadership of the University, and the monitorship ended effective December 31, 2007.
