Why is it important?
One of the groups defined under the Task Force’s “groups previously excluded” list was veterans: this program opens Harvard to groups who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take advantage of the resources available at the university. Furthermore, it is to Harvard’s advantage to establish partnerships with national organizations which seek equality and justice so that each institution can rely on the other for support and towards common goals.
