For students

REC is a student-founded, student-driven organization that is here to help you run smart and effective campaigns. We’re available to answer questions, provide insight, and guide you through its every stage. Whether you’re just getting started or almost done, we can help. Contact us for support – that’s exactly what we’re here for!

The Responsible Endowments Coalition has been extremely supportive of our group from the very beginning.  As a freshman, I had no organizing experience and, like many other endowment campaign members, felt a bit overwhelmed by the challenges we faced as a growing campaign navigating an opaque administration. However, REC shared with us their resources, talked with us about how to organize effective actions and teach-ins, and worked with us to create a detailed timeline for our campaign. I am thankful for REC and their continuous solidarity, and now feel comfortable when meeting with administrators or explaining endowments to a student audience. - Alexandra Hastings, Barnard College, class of 2016 

Specific ways REC works with students:

  • School Visits: We visit campuses to present about responsible investment, help engage with decision-makers, or support campus groups
  • National Conferences: We host an annual national conference with presentations and workshops led by students and professionals in the movement
  • Training: We help you develop skills necessary to start a group and move forward on responsible investing
  • Action Planning: We help coordinate joint efforts across campuses to build national momentum for our campaigns
  • Proposal Edits: We can help you edit proposals, letters, and other documents to help effectively frame responsible investment issues on campus
  • Networking: We connect students with responsible investment professionals
  • Information: We provide information, technical assistance, and connections to ally organizations and student activist networks
  • Document Templates: We have archives of  template documents based on successful materials at other schools that we can share with you
