UC voted against hundreds of shareholder resolutions designed to promote human rights, environmental sustainability, efforts to fight discrimination- U.C.'s voting record shows.

The documents show that the university voted against nonbinding resolutions that would have encouraged companies to set goals for lower emissions of greenhouse gases, carry out policies prohibiting discrimination against individuals based on sex or sexual identity, report political contributions, form human rights committees and improve treatment of animals. The university voted against 188 such resolutions in 2008, and at least 50 in 2009. Read the article: here or if you insist on NYTimes and not a local paper, see this version if you must.
