DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — A student group pushing the University of New Hampshire to end its investments in fossil fuel companies is holding an educational forum on responsible investing.

The Student Environmental Action Coalition and several other organizations are hosting the event Thursday evening in Durham. Speakers include Joe Keefe, president of Pax World Management. Students also plan to meet with University of New Hampshire President Mark Huddleston next week.

The group argues that while UNH is a leader in institutional sustainability, it is contradictory to invest in companies that it says threaten the environment.
