An email from Barnard SGA to the Barnard student body this morning announced that the student-voted referendum they released earlier in the semester has passed. Their email provides the voter breakdown:
SGA recently conducted a referendum on Fossil Fuel Divestment. 23.82% of the student body participated, and of that number, 95.92% voted in favor of divestment. As per our Constitution*, this referendum has passed. Thank you to all those who participated!
If you have feelings about the referendum results, DSpar, or the environment, be sure to attend the panel discussion later today at 4 pm in the James Room in Barnard Hall. The event is the first of its kind by the newly assembled Presidential Task Force to Examine Divestment.
