Barchi

Robert Lawrence Barchi (born November 23, 1946) is the 20th and current President of Rutgers University, having taken office on September 1, 2012. Barchi was appointed to the position on April 11, 2012, to succeed Richard L. McCormick. Previously, Barchi was president of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, prior to which he was provost of the University of Pennsylvania.

Barchi is a board-certified neurologist. He earned his BSc degree from Georgetown University in 1968, a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1972, and an MD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1973. Born in Philadelphia, Barchi grew up in Westfield, New Jersey, before moving back to Philadelphia during his freshman year of high school, attending St. Joseph's Preparatory School.

Barchi's appointment came as Rutgers was preparing to absorb most of the schools, programs and facilities of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey following the approval of a merger proposal by the New Jersey Legislature and the Governor of New Jersey during the summer of 2012.
