We received this letter — which has already been sent to President Poskanzer — from the author, with permission to publish it. He has suspended his monthly contributions to Carleton, and taken the college out of his will, as a result of the Board of Trustees’ vote against divestment.
The alumni of Divest Carleton have sent this open response to the Board of Trustees regarding their vote to reject the recommendation of their responsible investing committee. (The student response will come at the beginning of Winter Term, and we will post it here then.)
If you are interested in signing on to this response, just indicate that in the comments section. As we use the response in future outreach, your name will be included.
