Clarity on Student Senate Resolution
May 10, 2013
OBERLIN, OHIO -- The Oberlin College Student Senate recently passed a resolution calling for the institution to divest holdings from six companies that they believe "profit from the occupation and oppression of Palestinians."
Student Senate presented the resolution for consideration to the college's leadership and simultaneously sent it to media in a press release. Despite several reports to the contrary, in no way was the resolution meant to represent the opinions or intentions of the institution, administration, board, or investment committee.
The Oberlin College Investment Committee has been discussing the role of political and ethical considerations in developing future investment options and strategies, and will consider the students' request as one of many factors.
