With 100 pages of the text redacted, Rutgers management released its report on emergency response to Superstorm Sandy to the press on the Monday of Thanksgiving week. New Brunswick Today, The Star-Ledger, and TV Channel 9’s “Chasing New Jersey” have all covered the story.
You can find the report on the URA website here.
Highlights and problem areas of the University’s preparedness and response to the storm are laid out in large brushstrokes in the portions made public. The 100+ pages which have still not been shared are the reports of the subcommittees charged with reviewing specific topics. Nearly half of the pages which have been released contain graphics of responses to the online survey of students, faculty and staff.
You are cordially invited to the URA
