On April 30th, 2018, CISR recommended the university “use reasonable efforts to avoid investments in companies whose principal business is the extraction of tar sands.”
On June 7th, 2018, the Board of Directors “supported a recommendation to use reasonable efforts to avoid investments in companies whose principal business is the extraction of bituminous sands (“tar sands”) for use in energy production.”
