ACSRI Releases Divestment Proposal and Survey

Friday, September 9, 2016

The ACSRI (Advisory Committee on Socially Responsible Investing) advises the University Trustees on ethical and social issues that may affect investments of the University's endowment.  The Committee has previously considered and rejected student proposals for broad-based divestment from fossil fuel companies.  In the ACSRI’s response to a student group petition last fall, the Committee is considering a targeted fossil fuel divestment/no investment policy based on its Stand Up For Science methodology.  The Committee recently released its own divestment proposal on tar sands. Read the proposal, and take a survey here to voice your opinions by October 7th.
