الخيارات الثنائية منصات التداول “Our endowment holds roughly 10 percent of its endowment in energy stocks and investment. That’s roughly equivalent to the broad market as a whole,” said Senior Vice President for Finance and Treasurer Thomas Nedell. “That includes renewable energy and that includes fossil fuels. That’s part of the university’s holdings. We’re not going to try and shy away from that.”

شركتي Nedell also described a near-200 percent increase in Northeastern’s assets since 2006.

كيف اشتري اسهم في كوكاكولا Nedell showed that  Northeastern’s net assets grew from $835 million to $1.625 billion between 2006 and 2017, despite having a smaller endowment than many other prestigious universities. This success has led to recognition from the bond credit rating business Moody’s, which assigned Northeastern an A2 rating, signifying that the university’s finances are stable.

معلومات خاصة That endowment has been a point of controversy recently after an article published in the Guardian brought to light Northeastern’s investment in an offshore hedge fund that finances fossil fuels.

Professor of sustainability science and policy professor Jennie Stephens said the university’s gains from fossil fuel investments were not worth the negative impact they could have on its public image.

موقع انترنت “I understand your investment in diversity and I recognize the strength of your growth,” she said, “but to return to fossil fuels, it seems like such a small amount that I don’t understand the university’s thinking that they would want to continue to invest in fossil fuels against the cost of bad publicity.”

According to the recently leaked Paradise Papers, more than 100 US colleges and universities have offshore interests. In addition, Nedell pointed out, Northeastern is not directly investing in fossil fuels.

Ultimately, the university seems unlikely to revise its position on divestment in the near future.

“It was probably a three-year conversation with students, with some faculty members, with deliberations across the institution that got us to the point where we said ‘No, we’re not going to embrace the direction of divestment,’ and that was the decision,” Nedell said.

Also on the Faculty Senate agenda were three items related to graduate degrees. The board changed the name of the Ph.D. of law and public policy to the Ph.D. of public policy and the name of the Ph.D. in ecology, evolution and marine biology to the Ph.D. of marine and environmental sciences. The board also approved a new master’s degree in environmental science and policy.
