Brown students to address board on divestment


Brown University students who are pushing for the school to divest from coal companies will get a chance to address its governing body. Members of the Brown Divest Coal Campaign said they have been invited to speak Thursday during the first day of the Corporation’s annual two-day May meeting. The group has been pushing the board to take action to divest. An advisory committee on corporate responsibility has recommended that the university divest from the largest coal companies. The students said that nearly 3,000 undergraduates and hundreds of alumni and faculty have signed a petition supporting divestment.
