There is a powerful student movement afoot here at RU to persuade the university’s administration to get out front on energy and climate change policy matters by divesting of its investments in fossil fuels. Check out the online petition here. (The SUST program has officially endorsed the petition, FYI.) This is a hot topic on college and university campuses across the nation.
Kudos to RU student activists for taking the bull by the horns on this issue and engaging President Middleton in talks about how RU can demonstrate national leadership on the the critical issue of climate change mitigation.
