Haverford College students protesting against the discriminatory hiring policies and militaristic nature of the CIA forced the cancellation of recruiting meetings planned by the agency last month at the college's Career Planning office.
David Potter, vice-president for student services and administration, decided Jan 20 that CIA recruiters may not interview students on campus except in their private rooms, cancelling 10 interviews.
Haverford College, as an institution, should not "facilitate and support in the recruitment practices on an agency which performs activities the nature of those of the CIA," he said.
Complaints from two students, seniors John Taylor and David La Fontaine, brought the interviews to the administration's attention on Jan 20. Haverford News, Jan 28
