ROTC committee seeks input

I am chairman of an ad hoc committee that was appointed by Dean for Undergraduate Education Margaret L. A. MacVicar to consider ways to improve the relationship between MIT and the Reserve Officer Training Corps programs (ROTC). My committee and I are seeking comments from students, faculty, and staff.

An objective of my committee is to identify issues of concern to both MIT and the ROTC units. The committee is charged to resolve issues wherever possible or to recommend an appropriate path or mechanism for further action. To date, the committee's work has been to identify issues of mutual interest to the MIT community and to the ROTC programs. The issues have great variety, ranging from AIDS testing policies to harassment of MIT students in uniform.

Students, staff, and faculty who have comments for the MIT-ROTC Relationship Committee are encouraged to write in confidence to me.
