As a democratic institution the university should foster open debate and use its resources responsibly and with concern for the wider world.
The university has over £200 million of investments; many of these were donations to the university, and it should be careful to use them well.
It has already had a policy on ethical investment since 2003 but it has not been implemented effectively; we believe a review open to all members of the university will allow it to be strengthened.
Ethical investments can be done while remaining profitable; there are many ethical companies out there that offer good returns and are in need of investors.
So get involved and vote YES! to the motion next week!
