Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on Divestment
University policy provides for the establishment of an Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on Divestment when a proposal to divest from the Penn endowment has been received by the Steering Committee of University Council, and found to be sufficiently substantive for further review.
As such, an Ad Hoc Advisory Committee has been convened to consider a divestment proposal submitted by Fossil Free Penn in October 2015 according to the standards of the Guidelines and Procedures for Consideration by the Trustees of Proposals for Divestment from the University Endowment or Other Holdings Based Upon Social Responsibility Concerns of the Penn Community.
The Committee’s report will be made in writing to the Trustees, who have sole responsibility for making investment decisions for the University.
On behalf of David L. Cohen, Chair of the Board of Trustees, I am pleased to announce his appointees for membership to the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee.
—Leslie Laird Kruhly, Vice President and University Secretary
