No Forced ROTC: 1930-70
Protests against compulsory Reserve Officer Training Corps service on college campus were widespread for many years.

The requirement was originally part of the 1862 Morrill Act that established land grant colleges

Over the years, the requirement was challenged and the courts imposed limitations. Eventually the federal requirement was lifted and many colleges and universities across the country during the 1960s and early 1970s dropped the requirement. Some ended the program altogether.
