The following Department of Army Agency-Specific Term and Condition is added: i. Military Recruiting at Institutions of Higher Education As a condition for receipt of funds available to the Department of Defense (DOD) under this award, the recipient agrees that it is not an institution of higher education (as defined in 32 CFR Part 216) that has a policy of denying, and that it is not an institution of higher education that effectively prevents, the Secretary of Defense from obtaining for military recruiting purposes: (A) entry to campuses or access to students on campuses; or (B) access to directory information pertaining to students. If the recipient is determined, using procedures in 32 CFR Part 216, to be such an institution of higher education during the period of performance of this agreement, and therefore to be in breach of this clause, the Government will cease all payments of DOD funds under this agreement and all other DOD grants, cooperative agreements and contracts to the recipient, and it may suspend or terminate such grants, agreements and contracts unilaterally for material failure to comply with the terms and conditions of award.
