The Middlebury College endowment is worth $840 million. That is more than any of us (I assume!) will make in our lifetime. However, for four years, as students of this college, we have the opportunity to influence how that money is invested. This requires asking ourselves what our values our. We are passionate about our identities, our concerns and our values in the classroom, but we sometimes forget that the money allowing us to be here maybe we contradicting those values in very real ways.
The Socially Responsible Investment club tries to identify the collective values of our community and ensure that they are represented in our investments. We hope you will join us.
