Wisconsin University & FBC

1 University of Wisconsin, Madison
              (4); (24,844); $3,032; 94/6; 29%
              Borrowing a page from campus anti-apartheid protesters of the
              1980s, Madison students continued their campaign against
              human rights abuses by urging the university to divest from
              companies doing business with Burma. In 1995 they launched
              the Internet-based Free Burma Coalition, and last spring they
              helped convince the university to unload $239,000 worth of
              stock in Texaco, which has business ties to Burma.
