Columbia faculty are calling for divestment.
More than 340 Columbia faculty have co-signed a letter calling on President Lee Bollinger and the Columbia Board of Trustees to divest from fossil fuels.
The letter was covered in The Guardian in January 2015, and received national media attention. If you are a Columbia faculty member, we would love for you to join your colleagues and co-sign the letter!
