Yale (Mascot Insert Here) does good stuff

Tiago Rachelson:

Yale University has recently proposed a large plan to help out climate change. The university has a $20 Billion endowment. They said that they were doing this to analyze the effects of climate change with their economical platform. What they have been doing is investing their money into hedge funds and eventually this brought their entire endowment up 11% or $4 Billion extra. This money, used by their economic managers, can be used to fulfill students’ requests to invest into sustainability practice. You might not have won March Madness, but who cares!
