Humanists on Campus
The humanism movement seeks to reject the notion of dogmatic beliefs, and push people to think for themselves rather than rely on external inputs. Find them on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville hosting round table discussion on ethics and philosophy.
HoC works with Tangency to initiate dialogues on social responsibility amongst student groups.
University of Florida:
A collective of students, admin, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and community members have launched a campaign to divest the University of Florida’s $1.86 billion endowment. While collaborating with the ongoing Divest Gainesville effort, they are focusing exclusively on Fuchs, Glover, Board of Trustees, UF Foundation and Investment Corporation. Globally, over 150 higher education institutions have already committed to divest from fossil fuels including Yale, UC Santa Barbara, UMass, Oregon State, Oxford, and Cambridge. Similar campus efforts are presently underway at FSU, UCF, USF, and Miami.
DivestUF seeks to make UF the first in the SEC while also expanding their divestment objectives. The group goes beyond fossil fuels to include prison and military firms. Exxon, Lockheed Martin, G4S, Harris, Raytheon, Caterpillar, and Coal India Corporations top their list of companies. This objective is coupled with three commitments the group is seeking from the administration. These include a) closing the Duke Energy coal plant on campus while securing sustainability commitments, b) ending IFAS’s use of prison labor, and c) obtain a permanent seat on the UF Investment Corp’s board.
