Vanderbilt Guest Column: "Cultivating a sustainable endowment"

Sebastian Rogers and Ben Wibking of the Vanderbilt Responsible Endowment Campaign recently wrote a guest column celebrating their victory!  Vanderbilt divested from EMVest, a company accused of "land grabbing" in Mozambique and other countries.  Sebastian and Ben wrote,
This kind of coordinated action wouldn’t have been possible without serious student organizing. It has been one of the most inspiring experiences we have had here at Vanderbilt to see the amount of commitment our fellow students and friends put into the campaign because they cared about our impact on the rest of the world.
