Board of Trustee's Communications

2018

February 26, 2018 - Statement by Clark University’s Board of Trustees on Divest Clark Proposal
The Board of Trustees recognizes the value to the Clark community and to external communities of making this public statement regarding actions the University is taking to respond to human-induced climate change. The Board’s decision that the University’s investments in fossil fuel companies does not reach the threshold of immoral activities under the established Guidelines does not diminish Clark’s strongly held belief that climate change is impacted by human activities and the use of fossil fuels, and that we must seek viable alternative renewable energy sources to support our common good. The University re-commits to this urgent goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and to finding ways to mitigate the impacts of climate change on global society in the decades ahead.
