SRI Team Announces Select Students Will Sit on Board of Trustees Finance Committee
In an email sent out tonight, the Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) team announced that they have been in discussion with the administration to have a select group of students student sit on the Board of Trustees Finance Committee for the first time ever and also have the school reduce its holdings in TD Bank to $0. MiddBlog will have more updates on this announcement as they become available.
In the same announcement, the SRI team denied any involvement in the current fake press release scandal. While not condoning the fraudulent press release, the SRI team did recognize that the situation “presents an interesting opportunity to continue the discussion of ethics in Middlebury’s endowment.”
