Ithaca College Students Push Trustees to Abandon Fossil Fuels

Students demonstrating
Twice a year, Ithaca College’s Board of Trustees meets to discuss the vision and future of the institution.

At its fall meeting Wednesday, the board will be greeted by dozens of Ithaca College students who plan to urge the college to divest its endowments from the fossil fuel industry and invest in clean energy companies.

The campus group Environmental Leadership and Actions Network (ELAN) is behind the demonstration, which will be held outside the Ithaca College Campus Center at 5:30.

ELAN member Allison Currier says she and other students plan to show the Board of Trustees that divestment from environmentally irresponsible businesses is the biggest issue facing the institution.
