From Mira Klein ’17:
Are you interested in corporate, social, environmental, or governance issues? The balance of moral values with fiscal responsibility? Apply to the Committee for Investor Responsibility to become involved as a student representative!
The CIR, a student, faculty, staff, and alumni committee, was created to consider social and ethical issues with regards to the Wesleyan Endowment. The CIR engages in shareholder advocacy on behalf of the University and offers oversight to the investment decisions of the Board of Trustees. The CIR’s recent work and charter can be viewed on our website at cir.wsa.wesleyan.edu. Members’ duties include activities such as attending bimonthly to weekly meetings, independent research on issues of concern, as well as drafting shareholder resolutions. Most recently, the CIR has developed a proposal concerning the divestment of Wesleyan’s endowment from coal. This proposal can be found on the CIR website.
If you are interested in the CIR, please visit our website and familiarize yourself with what we do before applying. To apply, please submit one to two paragraphs explaining why you are interested in the committee and what relevant skills you would contribute to jhanway[at]wesleyan[dot]edu by Wednesday, April 22th at midnight.
Top candidates will be contacted for an interview. We hope to hear from you soon!
Application Deadline: Wednesday, April 22 (tomorrow!) at midnight
