Drew University SDS Wins an SRI Committee


Drew University is excited to announce that early next month we will have the first-ever meeting of Drew University’s Socially Responsible Investment Committee! We are thrilled to have found such strong student, staff, administration, faculty, and trustee support for using Drew’s endowment to make the world a better place. We are particularly proud to announce that students from all three schools—undergraduate, graduate, and theological—will be on the committee, and that a highly supportive and influential emeritus trustee will be joining us there as well.


Our committee will harness all of this talent and energy with three levels of involvement. First, the committee’s eleven voting members, five of whom are students, will set the direction and tone of our engagement with the campus community and trustees. Next, the committee’s growing ranks of non-voting members will take the committee’s work to the next level by dedicating themselves to specific campaigns. Finally, individuals who do not have the time or dedication to become committee members will guide us toward the issues and campaigns that matter most to them while holding us accountable when we fall behind.


Right now, we are scrambling to prepare for the committee’s first meeting, but we want to take the time to recognize the invaluable support we have received from REC. Your expertise, resources, and contacts made it possible for us to transform our dream into reality. Thank you, REC!


With passion,


Drew Students for a Democratic Society (SRI Working Group)
