Goshen and EMU Students Urge Divestment

Click here to read about a divestment campaign sponsored by student activists from Goshen College and Eastern Mennonite University. The students are urging the Mennonite Education Agency to divest from investments in fossil fuel and mineral extraction companies.

“By investing in fossil fuel and mineral extraction companies, Goshen College and Eastern Mennonite University are perpetuating climate change, infringing on the rights of Indigenous people, and destroying God’s creation: Mother Earth,” says an Open Letter recently released by the students. “These attacks and violations of human rights are wrong, and are a direct contradiction to our stated values and beliefs.”
