socially responsible Investing -- 2003/2004


Socially Responsible Investing Initiative 

BC is a Jesuit University with a strong reputation for its commitment to social justice, however, we are asking, "Does this commitment include how our $1 Billion endowment is invested?" AT our kick-off event will held a short presentation that answered the following questions:

  • What is Socially Responsible Investing?
  • Is Boston College investing its money in a socially responsible way?
  • Why can’t we find out what companies our University is invested in?
  • How are other Universities investing responsibly?

What can we do to bring Socially Responsible Investing to Boston College? On January 26th we answered the last question by presenting our proposal to create an Advisory Committee on Socially Responsible Investing that will truly make BC a University of "Men and Women for Others."
