Description : Abstract
Meg Vaillancourt reports on the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Endowment for Divestiture, created by MIT faculty and alumni who oppose the university's continued investment in South Africa. Vaillancourt's report includes footage from a press conference with Mel King (MIT Professor and community activist), Phil Katz (MIT), and John Correia (MIT). Vaillancourt reports that the Endowment for Divestiture will be turned over to the MIT general fund when the university has divested completely from South Africa.

Vaillancourt's report includes footage of John Parsons (Trustee for the Endowment for Divestment) saying that the alternative endowment will be soundly invested in companies not doing business in South Africa.
