Advocates for Harvard ROTC News Tidbits

14 December 2001

From LTC Brian L. Baker, P.E., USA, Professor of Military Science for Army ROTC at MIT, Harvard, Wellesley & Tufts:
    Colonel Baker stated, "Harvard was ranked #2 last year for Army officer production among all Ivy schools. This is significant as both Cornell and Princeton are host schools (like MIT), in that the ROTC program is located on their campuses." Colonel Baker has further good news for current and future cadets- Harvard and MIT are included in the fourteen preeminent schools that will receive funding for full tuition scholarships!
