Penn State currently does not have a Committee on Investor Responsibility.

In September 2000, Penn State's Board of Trustees established the Penn State Investment Council to provide direct oversight of the University's endowment and long-term investment program. The Penn State Investment Council, appointed by the Board of Trustees, includes the: Senior Vice President for Finance and Business/Treasurer of the University (Chair); Executive Director, Office of Investment Management; and five to nine non-University members (at least one of whom is a member of the Board of Trustees).
