Rutgers-New Brunswick Chancellor Out After 1 Year

July 26, 2018

NJ.com reported that in an email message to students, Dutta wrote, "It has become clear that my vision for the chancellorship is not in alignment with that of the university.

A spokesman said that Dutta left by "mutual agreement" with Robert Barchi, president of the Rutgers system.
