UC Faculty for Full Divestment was an organization of faculty at the University of California (UC) that campaigned to get UC to divest from companies doing business in apartheid South Africa. UC Faculty for Full Divestment lobbied the UC regents and the faculty senates of UC Berkeley and some other UC campuses. UC Faculty for Full Divestment spoke at rallies/demonstrations and got publicity for the issue. UC Faculty for Full Divestment sat in at University Hall on the UC Berkeley campus and members were arrested but the charges were later dropped. UC Faculty for Full Divestment started in 1985 and apparently continued until the University of California divestment in 1986. (Todd Gitlin, a former member of UC Faculty for Full Divestment.)
