MEMBERS OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE, SAN DIEGO DIVISION
SUBJECT: || Senate Voting Reminder – Fossil Fuel Memorial|
In accordance with UC Academic Senate Bylaws 90 and 95, voting is open
for the following Memorial to the UC Regents.
The U.C. Academic Senate petitions the Regents to divest the
University’s endowment portfolio of all investments in the 200 publicly
traded fossil fuel companies with the largest carbon reserves.
UC Senate members systemwide are voting on the memorial, and if a
majority of the valid ballots cast approve the Memorial, it shall be
sent by the Chair of the UC Assembly to President Napolitano for
submission to the UC Regents. As per Senate Bylaw 90, this systemwide
vote follows consideration of the memorial by individual Divisions
earlier this spring.
A brief account of the memorial’s procedural history, an explanation of
its provisions, and succinct statements of arguments in favor and
against the memorial are located on the following webpage:
All voting is electronic. Please use the following link to vote:
The voting system will authenticate your identity via the campus Single
Sign-On system and is designed to maintain the confidentiality of the
voting process by keeping track of who has voted, but not how each
member votes. Once the ballot is submitted, neither the voter nor
anyone else can change the votes. To minimize technical difficulties
while completing the voting ballot, please refrain from using your
browser’s forward and backward buttons. Instead, use the “previous” and
“next” buttons provided on the ballot form to navigate between screens.
If you are unable to access the ballot electronically, you may contact
Andrew Flores (firstname.lastname@example.org or 4-3640) to arrange to vote
electronically in the Senate Office.
Voting will continue until 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 19, 2019, the
deadline for all votes to be cast.
Thank you for voting.
San Diego Divisional Academic Senate
