Students want UNH to divest in fossil fuels
DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — Students concerned about the environment want the University of New Hampshire to stop investing in fossil fuel companies.
The UNH chapter of the Student Environmental Action Coalition is delivering 1,000 petition signatures to President Mark Huddleston's office on Thursday, and will be holding banners and handing out informational flyers outside Thompson Hall.
The students want to meet with Huddleston in the next two months to discuss the possibility of divesting UNH's endowment from fossil fuel companies. They argue that while UNH is a leader in institutional sustainability, it is contradictory to invest in companies that threaten the environment.
