Keep ROTC off of Yale's Campus sign now

We call on the Yale University Administration to join students and other members of the Yale community in opposition to expansion of the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at Yale College.

Nondiscrimination. Whereas ROTC openly discriminates against non-heterosexuals, we ask the administration to reaffirm its commitment to its stated policy of nondiscrimination "on the basis of sexual orientation."

Civil Education. In the spirit of President Dwight Eisenhower's admonition against military-industrial influence in "the free university," we call on the Administration to reaffirm the principles of civil education fit for a free-thinking, democratic society.

Learning, Not Militarization. In order to preserve the University as a seat of critical, independent thought, we call on the Administration to stand with us in principled opposition to ROTC expansion. We call on the Administration to oppose the empty rhetoric of patriotism and all such attempts at intimidating the spirit of free inquiry, dissent, and peaceful discussion.
