Brown Joins Harvard in Rejecting Fossil Fuel Divestment
Recently, as we have noted, Harvard rejected the demand. See http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/10/04/harvard-rejects-call-divest-fossil-fuels. Today, Inside Higher Ed is reporting that Brown University has also rejected it. See http://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2013/10/28/brown-u-rejects-call-sell-holdings-coal-companies.
Given the current anti-pension initiative about which we have also been blogging, any sense that the pension fund is being used for "political" purposes would be sensitive and likely something the Regents would avoid.
