Sen. Jeff Merkley GS ’82: Time for Princeton to divest from fossil fuels

“Princeton University is in the business of creating the future. Through both its educational and research missions, the scholars and students of this incredible institution help us reimagine the possible and redefine the practical. To support that future-building mission, it is time we stop enabling a fossil fuel industry that is strangling our shared potential.”
