Divestment Campaigns

Official stances compromise a university’s ability to produce unbiased research. Would you trust a paper on the risks of abortion from a Catholic school? After Stanford’s divestment from coal companies, will its work on climate change be viewed as research or advocacy? If a school divests from Israel, could its faculty conduct unbiased study of the Middle East? If universities become advocacy organizations, they will lose their place as trusted research laboratories.
