Rutgers University will divest from fossil fuel investments and has pledged to invest more in sustainability and exit private fossil fuel investments. This was achieved through student movements. According to the university’s official website, fossil fuel investments account for approximately 5% of the university’s $1.6 billion endowment. Other schools in the US have made the same decision. Rutgers is one of the most recent universities to make the decision to get rid of its less environmentally friendly investments. Cornell, the University of Michigan, Georgetown, and Brown have all divested away from fossil fuels as well.
