End the Use of Fur on Graduation Robe Hoods

It is important for the University to cease the use of fur on graduation hoods for two main reasons: the first, and the most obvious, is the devastating impact that fur trade has on the animal world. Secondly, the University of St Andrews is an academic institution that prides itself on progressive research and various 'green' initiatives, thus the use of fur on the graduation robes is completely contradictory to the university's pursuits.
