Over the last few months, more than 200 campuses across the country have joined a new nationwide fossil fuel divestment campaign spearheaded by 350.org, the international climate campaign founded by McKibben and a group of Middlebury graduates.

Tonight, at 7:30 pm, Middlebury College will host a panel discussion featuring Bill McKibben and four other experts on the ongoing debate over whether environmental and social concerns should influence investment policies of college and university endowments. Debating the question along with McKibben will be Charlie Arnowitz ’13, president of the Student Government Association; Ralph Earle, a renewables-focused venture investor and former assistant secretary of environmental affairs for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; Alice Handy, founder and president of Investure, the firm that manages a portion of Middlebury’s endowment; Mark Kritzman, the CEO of Windham Capital Management and a senior lecturer in finance at MIT. Watch this critical discussion tonight starting at 7:30 pm EST.
