DADT fallout: Harvard, Yale rethinking ban on ROTC

Harvard University President Drew Faust today signaled that she would move to restore ROTC to the campus.

“Because of today’s action by the Senate, gay and lesbian Americans will now also have the right to pursue this honorable calling, and we as a nation will have the benefit of their service,” she said in a statement through a spokesman. “I look forward to pursuing discussions with military officials and others to achieve Harvard’s full and formal recognition of ROTC.”

A spokesman for Yale University also suggested that change may be coming soon.
