* The ROTC programs located on the MIT campus are operated under Department of Defense policies and regulations, and do not comply fully with MIT's policy of non-discrimination with regard to sexual orientation. On the recommendation of the faculty, MIT is working to develop a modified on-campus ROTC program open to all MIT students.
