Higher Education Divestment Scorecard

This is my attempt to pull together information on the state of divestment from fossil fuels  in higher education.  A “yes” (Y) means the institution has committed to some level of divestment; a “NO” means the institution has formally rejected divestment.  A blank in the Divest? column means some type of coordinated faculty action has occurred, but no institutional action has been taken.  Note that students have organized in many additional institutions; my focus here is on faculty response.

I make no claims to have captured everything; please send errors and omissions via a comment.  Thanks.
