Strength Comes in Numbers.

Change does not come easy. For too long we have subsidized almost every aspect of our life with fossil fuels without realizing the true consequences of our behavior. Thus we are paying an increasingly higher price for our dependence on coal, oil, and natural gas. The goal of this website is not only to provide faculty and staff with ideas and tools needed to start a divestment campaign on their campuses but also to educate college and university administrators that fiduciary and environmental responsibilities go hand in hand. The time to divest is now!

Let’s work together to divest from fossil fuels and make the development and utilization of renewable sources of energy the lunar landing of the 21st century.
