Thanks Bob.

These campaigns have gotten a lot of attention regionally and nationally.  I think a lot can be learned from those efforts.   I like your use of the term coalition.  I hope this coalition can reach outside of Post for support from neighboring communities and institutions.  I know of one upcoming panel that will tackle this topic:
Someone should try to attend the Left Forum on Sunday May 31.  Excellent networking opportunity.

A second recommendation would be to organize an event to coincide with the third anniversary of Sandy to raise campus awareness re: this issue.
Hopefully this will be an issue that excites our SGA, Student Government Association.  Perhaps the SGA President would be willing to work on this issue over the summer.

Subject: [Post-sustainability-committee] divestment coalition

I’m interested in knowing if there are any on this list serve who might be interested in forming a coalition to promote the divestment of the LIU endowment funds-just recently disclosed-from fossil fuel industries to clean energy sources.

A few of my doctoral students have been researching the topic for some time and we are looking for some like-minded faculty, students and staff to work with on such a project.

If you are interested in discussing such a project I would love to hear from you.
