The Southern Africa Solidarity Committee (SASC), a student group at the University of Minnesota, was formed to unite the effort of a number of independent organizations. The purpose of SASC was to support the end of apartheid and white minority rule in South Africa through the withdrawal of United States political, military and economic involvement in Southern Africa. The primary goal was the full and immediate divestment of all University of Minnesota stock in corporations doing business in South Africa. A secondary goal was the divestment of all state-owned stock in such corporations.
