Apply to be on the CIR!

Are you interested in corporate social, environmental, or governance issues? The Committee for Investor Responsibility (CIR) is accepting applications for its fifth student representative. 

The CIR is a student, faculty, staff, and alumni committee that has the power to engage in shareholder advocacy on behalf of the University. This includes activities such as proxy voting, advising the University on community investment, pushing for endowment transparency, and filing shareholder resolutions.

The CIR’s charter, which outlines the committee’s mission and purview, is available here. Membership will include approximately weekly meetings with students and/or staff, and several hours a week of outside work, including researching banks and institutions, researching background on shareholder resolutions, and drafting resolutions to bring to the Board of Trustees

To apply, submit one-two paragraphs, explaining why you’d like to be on the committee and what relevant skills you have, to rwarren[at]wesleyan[dot]edu by Monday February 20th at 5PM. Soon after we receive your application, you will be notified of when interviews will occur.
