GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie will deliver the keynote address to Rowan University graduates next month.

The university will also bestow honorary degrees to Christie, Senate President Steve Sweeney and state Sen. Donald Norcross.

Rowan officials say Sweeney and Norcross were instrumental in partnering the university in Glassboro in co-founding Cooper Medical School in 2009.

Christie and the Democrats also championed legislation that designated Rowan as a comprehensive research school that could offer both D.O. and M.D. medical degrees.
