Faculty Petition

Although the faculty vote in May 2016 demonstrated definitive support for fossil fuel divestment, CJC continues to work with faculty to show the Board of Trustees that there is strong support for our three goals:

  1. Immediately freeze further investments in the top 200 publicly traded fossil fuel companies,
  2. Divest the approximately 2% of its endowment currently invested in fossil fuel companies within the next five years,
  3. Reinvest part of the endowment into environmentally and socially responsible enterprises.

If you are a member of the Mount Holyoke faculty and support these goals, please sign the faculty letter below (scroll). As more students sign the petition and more faculty sign this letter, the case for divestment becomes stronger and more irrefutable.
