Tier2-3: Socially Responsible Retirement Plan
Associate VP for Human Resources & Organizational Development
Does the institution offer a socially responsible investment option for retirement plans?:
A brief description of the socially responsible investment option for retirement plans:
Among the investment options available within the College’s retirement plans is the “CREF Social Choice Account” which invests in a diversified set of stocks and other equity securities, bonds, and fixed-income securities, as well as money market instruments and other short-term debt instruments. The account invests only in companies that meet its screening criteria. Using specific environmental, social and governance criteria, the evaluation process seeks out companies that are: strong stewards of the environment; devoted to serving local communities and society in general; committed to high labor standards; dedicated to producing high-quality, safe products; and those managed in an ethical manner.
