Responsible Investment at Wesleyan

Do you know what companies Wesleyan is invested in?

Do you know what values these companies promote?

Do you know how you can influence these companies’ social, environmental, and governance policies?

The Committee for Investor Responsibility is hosting a town hall forum this Wednesday April 7th from 7-8 pm in PAC004. There will be pizza and a discussion about the role that students and other members of the University community play in Wesleyan’s endowment.

Similar committees at peer institutions have successfully engaged in campaigns to induce companies to include sexual orientation in their nondiscrimination policies and have added socially responsible funds to their endowments.

The Committee for Investor Responsibility wants to know what issues are important to Wes’ student body; with student feedback, Wes can work toward meaningful change in the companies in which we are invested.

Date: Wednesday, April 7th
Time: 7-8 pm
Location: PAC004
What: A conversation on responsible investment at Wesleyan and FREE pizza

    Convince the board to divest from weapons contractors! we have a huge stake in General Dynamics and Raytheon, two of the biggest arms manufacturers in the US. Our money is helping the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We tried to get the board to divest in spring 2008, but the whole effort was derailed when Obama came to town.

    It’s a terrifying situation. It’s gotta end.
