President’s Statement on Military Recruiting on Campus

November 13, 2007

Amherst College respects those who choose to serve our country through military service and remains dedicated to providing our undergraduates opportunities to do so. Amherst is likewise steadfast in its commitment to our anti-discrimination policy; previously, the military was welcome to recruit on campus as long as they agreed to participate in public forums about the federally mandated “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
