Prezbo Urges Repeal of DADT

As The Chronicle reports, President Bollinger joined a number of other University Presidents late last month in signing a letter to Congress supporting the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. An excerpt:

From our perspective as educators, this policy is detrimental to both our students and the nation. We promote diversity on our campuses — and strive to instill the value of respect for all people, including those different from ourselves — not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it strengthens our academic communities and society as a whole.

Our nation needs the best and brightest at the highest levels of the military, and all of our students — not just some — deserve to have the opportunity to aspire to and reach their goals, whatever they may be. They also deserve the right to defend their country in these very challenging times.
