“Divesting from fossil fuels is the right thing to do for the University of Vermont, given our history and longstanding commitment to sustainability efforts,” said Suresh Garimella, president of the university. “As the climate crisis deepens, divestment—here and at other schools—is also the right thing to do for our environment and future generations. As we work to have a tangible effect on emissions, divesting brings attention to the global need for governments, organizations and individuals to aggressively confront the challenge of climate change.”
