ROTC returns to Harvard

March 4, 2011

Harvard President Drew Faust is signing an agreement with the Navy today to officially bring ROTC back to campus. The agreement makes good on a promise Faust made to recognize ROTC once the military repealed its ban on service by openly gay men and women.

In Rhode Island, Brown University President Ruth Simmons has also said she would consider bringing ROTC back to campus. The military officer training program has not had a presence at Brown or Harvard since the Vietnam War era.
