Next Academic Senate virtual town hall on Nov. 30

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Do endowment fund investments at the University of Utah balance the institution’s economic, ethical, community and environmental concerns?

The Academic Senate ad hoc Committee for Divestment and Reinvestment Investigation is holding a series of Town Hall meetings (via Zoom) during Fall 2020. This committee is charged with making recommendations to the Academic Senate regarding the balance of endowment fund investments on matters of economic, ethical, community and environmental concerns. The committee hopes that our recommendations will be based on both sound research and feedback from the U community.

The next session will be Monday, Nov. 30, 2020, from 12-1 p.m. Join us to learn more about the ad hoc committee’s charge, the process for Town Hall feedback meetings and to weigh in on the question above.
