ASUW Bothell supports UW divestment from fossil fuels

A resolution originated in the ASUW senate leaderships urging the UW to divest all fossil fuels holdings from its endowment was passed by the ASUW executive team. ASUW Bothell’s executive board has since signed in support, and now awaits the resolution to be brought before the UW Board of Regents. To learn more about the call to action for UW to divest from fossil fuels, please read the resolution here.
