"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Does the institution have a committee on investor responsibility or similar body that meets the criteria for this credit?:

The charter or mission statement of the CIR or other body, which reflects social and environmental concerns, or a brief description of how the CIR is tasked to address social and environmental concerns :

The Board of Regents has an investment subcommittee that considers socially and environmentally responsible investing for the university's endowment. The committee members are members of the board, and an alumnus, faculty, staff and a student serve as advisory members. In addition, the group includes an investment advisor. Because of the investment choices, there is no opportunity for proxy voting. (The Board of Regents is in the process of revising this subcommittee to make it a committee of the board, with advisory members. Those guidelines should be complete by October 12. While they change the structure, they don't change the substance of the advice.)

Members of the CIR, including affiliations:

Provost, Associate Provost/Information & Technology Services, one member of the Center for Teaching, Registrar, PLU bookstore director, two students selected by Associated Students of PLU (one representing residential students and one representing off-campus students), and one member of the Faculty Affairs Committee.

Currently, this consists of the following people:
John Paul Avila, Art
Janet Weiss, Instructional Development and leadership
Genevieve Williams (chair), Library
Steven Thomson, Anthropology
David Wolff, Computer Science & Computer Engineering
Jason Skipper, English
Michelle Ceynar, Psychology
Justin Lytle, Chemistry
