U of C & Darfur

“A Chicago City Council committee has voted to ‘denounce’ the University of Chicago for its refusal to rid its financial portfolio of $1 million invested in companies doing business in the Sudan,” NBC5 reports.

The university has a track record; it refused to divest in South Africa in the 1980s when pressure was brought to bear on that country’s apartheid regime. The issue now, of course, is the slaughter in Darfur.

Question of the Day: Is the University of Chicago being morally reprehensible?
