AbstractBowdoin College in Main has dropped a policy, adopted in 1990, that resulted in the U.S. Military being barred from recruiting on campus. Under Bowdoin's 1990 policy employers had to certify that they did not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. Because the military will not recruit openly gay people its representatives were banned from campus. As of February 1995, Bowdoin had to change this policy because of a amendment to the bill authorizing defense programs recently enacted in congress that prohibits the Department of Defense from supporting any research at colleges that bar military recruiters.
