Syracuse University drops fossil fuel stocks from its $1.2B endowment

Syracuse University has announced plans to drop all fossil fuel stocks from its $1.2 billion endowment, the largest endowment to divest entirely of fossil fuel stocks.

The drop is in response to a “Divest SU” campaign by The General Body, a movement and coalition of Syracuse University students organizing for change.

These student protesters staged an 18-day sit-in over disinvestment from fossil fuels in November.
