The University Should Divest from Fossil Fuels

IMG_3814-622x933In January of 2016, we, Fossil Free SCU, released a response letter criticizing the university’s decision to not remove its investments in commingled funds that include fossil fuel-extraction companies.

Although the university committed to a small number of new, sustainable investments, it made no commitments to reduce its stock in fossil fuels, nor offer any transparency on the school’s portfolio. Divestment, we argue, is crucial to Santa Clara’s mission for a more “just, humane and sustainable world.”
