Larry Pileggi, The Sukanto Tanoto Professor

Larry Pileggi is the Tanoto Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.

Larry should have realized that Sukanto Tanoto is a corrupt entrepreneur responsible for destroying rain forests in Indonesia. Larry is still comfortably and Proudly carry the Tanoto Professorship.

Look at what other universities have done:

Students and dons at 14 Oxford colleges have urged the university to purge its £3.3bn endowment fund of all investments in fossil fuel companies. The move follows 64 Oxford professors and other senior academics signing an open letter and a petition by over 800 students, staff and alumni.

The fossil fuel divestment campaign won a major victory today as Stanford University announced it would drop coal companies from its massive $18.7 billion endowment, the fourth largest of any American university. The action follows a petition by student group Fossil Free Stanford, five months of research by Stanford’s Advisory Panel on Investment Responsibility and Licensing, and finally a vote by the Board of Trustees.

Larry, it’s time for you to dump the Tanoto name.
