#Michlinks: To Fight Climate Change, College Students Take Aim at the Endowment Portfolio

BY ADAM RUBENFIRE

#Michlinks is The Michigan Daily’s citizen journalism tool that compiles reporting about Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan.

The New York Times reports that an increasing number of students are trying to stop global warming by protesting their colleges' or universities' endowment portfolios. Most of the institutions featured in the article are smaller colleges, but students at those schools are making a change. Environmental journalist Bill McKibben, who visited the University in September, was interviewed for the article.
