Funeral Services Recording

divestTwo College of Education faculty were part of a group of speakers from OSU Divest, a faculty-led group that wants Oregon State University’s foundation to rid itself of investments in fossil fuel companies, who made an 18-minute presentation Thursday before the Faculty Senate.

Ken Winograd and Mike O’Malley (College of Education), Glencora Borradaile (College of Engineering) and professor emeritus Richard Clinton all spoke on various aspects of the campaign.

OSU Divest wants the OSU Foundation to:

• Immediately cease all new investments in any of the top 200 fossil fuel companies;
• Ensure that within five years none of its assets include holdings in such companies; and
• Release quarterly updates to the public detailing progress made toward complete divestment.

Learn more about OSU Divest campaign on their Facebook page.
