Faculty play a critical role in university divestment campaigns

letter writing campaigns


Faculty support is essential for moving campus divestment campaigns forward. We have compiled a list of universities that spans Canada, the US, the UK and New Zealand where the faculty have been urging their universities to divest from fossil fuels, in letters to their administration and governing boards. To read what they have to say and who signed the letters, select from the list of institutions below and get inspired by this amazing campaign.


In addition, FossilFree.org maintains a comprehensive list of postsecondary institutions that have already committed to divesting, which is available here.
