For Commitees, Administrators, and Trustees


REC has opted to dedicate its work to the public domain by waiving all rights. This means that individuals and organizations may take what is useful from REC’s written resources and adapt materials to fit their needs without restriction (e.g. there is no need to credit REC). 

Resources are available below. You may also visit REC’s public Legacy Resource folder to access materials on community investment, shareholder engagement, proxy voting, etc. 

General Information

REC previously helped administrators, committees, and trustees, by connecting them to shareholder advocates and responsible investment experts. REC identified institutions that had committees on investor responsibilities. Does your school have a committee? View a list of committees here.

The following organizations are also excellent resources for committees on investor responsibility, administrators, and trustees:

Specific ways REC works with committees, administrators, and trustees:

  • Providing support on integrating responsible investment into endowment management, and building an inclusive and useful process
  • Sharing resources about implementing responsible investment that are specifically for administrators and trustees
  • Connecting administrators and trustees to members of the responsible investment industry
  • Connecting you to venues where you can connect to peers at other institutions
