EXHIBIT REVIEW, PAGE 18 ACTIVISM | BY JEREMY MOULE | PAGE 8 | PHOTO BY MATT DETURCK College students in fossil fuel fight Colleges in the Rochester area and across the country have gone to great lengths to build up their sustainability cred. The efforts vary from campus to campus but include reducing food waste and curbing energy consumption. Some schools have pledged to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. Yet many schools, from Ivy League universities to small liberal arts colleges, still have money invested in oil, coal, and natural gas companies. The contradiction is not lost on students, some of whom are now trying to convince campus administrators to change their investing approach. Student groups at the University of Rochester and SUNY Geneseo are leading campaigns to get their schools to end their investments in fossil fuel companies. They say they want their schools to take a stand against the industry and its role in one of the biggest environmental and social issues of their generation: climate change.
