Seattle University becomes first WA college to divest from fossil fuels

Seattle University has withdrawn all its investments from companies that hold fossil fuel reserves, making it Washington’s first higher education institution to do so.

The move also makes Seattle University the first Jesuit university in the world to divest from fossil fuels.

The university announced a five-year divestment plan in 2018, estimating at the time that $16.3 million of the university’s $230 endowment went to fossil fuel companies.
