WASHINGTON, D.C.-U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) released the below statement after Rutgers University appointed Dr. Jonathan Holloway to be president of New Jersey's flagship university:
'I applaud Rutgers for their approval of the university's first black president, Dr. Jonathan Holloway. As a distinguished historian and visionary leader, President Holloway will guide Rutgers as it continues to ascend as one of our nation's preeminent public universities. At a time when only one in five of all college and university presidents is a minority, it's encouraging that Rutgers is taking representation seriously and showing their students what is possible. I look forward to working together again and wish him the best in his new post.'
