Four firms banned from on-campus recruiting
February 4, 1971 — As a result of the new policy forbidding organizations that practice discrimination, the Office of Student Services has barred General Foods, IBM, Dun and Bradstreet and Ford Motor Company from recruiting on campus because they do business with South Africa. The four major firms cancelled their campus visits immediately upon hearing of the new policy.
The OSS board has pledged not to extend its services to any “profit corporation operating where discrimination is legally enforced on the basis of race, color, creed, or sex, for example South Africa.” These firms with South African offices can still utilize other placement offices at the University.
Upjohn Corporation and the Chase Manhattan Bank have not canceled any appointments even though they both have offices in South Africa. William Audas, associate director of Placement Services, said that if it is confirmed that these two offices follow apartheid practices, they will not be able to use the OSS. He added that the policy will affect about 15 percent of the companies that use the office.
