On Sept. 30, four members of GU Fossil Free delivered the campaign’s final proposal and a letter to Michael Barry, Chief Investment Officer of Georgetown University. After handing over a physical copy of the proposal to a worker at the Investment Office, they sat down with Mr. Barry himself, who was in the office at the time. The members urged him to schedule a long-awaited meeting between GU Fossil Free and the Committee on Investments and Social Responsibility (CISR).
This meeting would garner the CISR’s endorsement of divestment within the next month, a crucial step for moving review forward to the Board of Directors!
