President Ruth Simmons responds to ROTC report

President Simmons recommended affirming Brown's 1969 faculty resolution not to give any academic appointments to ROTC faculty, effectively barring on-campus ROTC due to provisions of the ROTC Vitalization Act of 1964. In contrast, other Ivy colleges have created special visiting professor or "Directory of ROTC" faculty positions to meet the requirements of the law.  She urged discussion with the Department of Defense about expanding "cross-institutional" ROTC opportunities for Brown students at other colleges.
