UCSC Academic Senate to Discuss Divestment from Fossil Fuels

The UCSC Academic Senate is slated to discuss divestment from fossil fuels at their May 29th meeting. The Environmental Studies faculty is submitting a resolution urging the Regents to divest the UC's investment portfolio from the top 200 fossil fuel companies ranked by carbon reserves exploitable.

Fossil Free UC has compiled a short document outlining rationale for divestment. They invite your comments and questions on the document here. If you are an interested party wishing to discuss the divestment initiative with The Fossil Free UC campaign, please contact ffuc-santa-cruz-group [at] ucsc [dot] edu to set up a meeting time.
