For Commitees, Administrators, and Trustees

REC helps committees, administrators, and trustees, by connecting them to shareholder advocates, responsible investment experts and others. If you are a member of a committee on investor responsibility, whether student, faculty, administrator, alum or trustee, and would like to get involved, please contact us.

Does your school have a committee? View a list of committees here.

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
