Faust Expresses Disappointment in Divest Harvard Video Confrontation | News | The Harvard Crimson
University President Drew G. Faust wrote in an email to Divest Harvard that she was disappointed in the way that the group, which calls for Harvard’s divestment from fossil fuel companies, presented a recent comment she made regarding the oil industry’s influence.
Last month, Alli J. Welton ‘15, the Student Outreach Co-Chair of Divest Harvard, approached Faust while on a walk in Harvard Yard to confront her about the University’s stance on fossil fuel divestment.
During the encounter, which was videotaped and posted on Vimeo, Welton asked who would take on the issue of climate change if Harvard would not, to which Faust responded that Harvard aids in the transition to renewable resources through academic discoveries.
In a moment that has since garnered attention beyond Harvard’s campus, Welton claimed that the fossil fuel industry prevents the implementation of these discoveries, after which Faust said, “That is not the case.”

This is great. Harvard students and enviro activists call out the President on her refusal to even countenance the idea of divesting the Harvard Corporation’s $35 billion endowment from fossil fuel companies.
