11 December 2012 Student Endowment Committee meeting
On December 11th, a group of 17 students met to discuss the endowment. Ultimately, the group decided to endorse the 350.org campaign and call for divestment from fossil fuels. The group is also considering longer-term goals and the potential creation of an all-college committee to provide consistency to this discussion. The group is currently reorganizing and creating a leadership structure for the rest of the year. They are also working on drafting an introductory letter to the administration and the Board with the intent of emailing the letter before ~January 10th. The group looks forward to presenting their stance, as well as research on sustainable investment returns, to the Trustee Committee on Investments in May.
