The Faculty of Arts and Sciences may pass the new ROTC plan when it meets this afternoon. If passed, the plan will go to the Pentagon for approval.
The new program, as designed by a sub-committee of the Committee on Educational Policy, would bring about sweeping changes in the present ROTC curriculum. The new plan includes provisions to condense the present four-year plan of study to three years, to enlarge the six-week summer camp to 12 weeks, and to liberalize the present ROTC curriculum. Under the new program students would be admitted to ROTC as sophomores, instead of as freshmen, as under the present set-up.
