Statement from Chancellor Wilcox on fossil fuel divestment at UC

February 12, 2018. UCR Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox made the following statement:

"The University of California is a global leader among higher education institutions in the effort to combat climate change, including a systemwide goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2025. I am pleased to support the members of the UCR community—faculty, staff, and students—advocating for fossil fuel divestment by UC. I look forward to engaging with my fellow chancellors and the Board of Regents in a discussion about divestment as one of many strategies taken by the UC aimed at tackling the crisis of climate change."
