Our communities, environment and future are threatened by rising global temperatures caused by the burning of fossil fuels. Therefore we believe our university should not be invested in corporations which are involved with the extraction, production, or distribution of fossil fuels.
The mission of higher education is to provide individuals with the tools, resources, and knowledge to have an influence on the world around them. These schools are investing in our future. Yet at the same time, they are supporting corporations that are actively threatening the future that we envision for ourselves.
