Misrepresentative Headline in Recent Op-Ed

February 24, 2017

Earlier today, The Columbia Daily Spectator published an op-ed written by members of Divest Barnard with the headline, “Divesting from climate deniers is not enough.” This headline was published without our consent, and does not accurately represent our views on the issue expressed within the piece. We want to explicitly reiterate that we stand in favor of the Task Force recommendation for Option 4, to divest from climate deniers. As members of the Task Force, we voted for Option 4, and we continue to support this consensus, which we truly believe will be an inspiring and innovative path for Barnard. We look forward to the Board of Trustees vote in eight days.
