A brief description of how the institution (or its foundation) has engaged in shareholder advocacy that promotes sustainability during the previous 3 years. :

The University System of Maryland Foundation (USMF) does not hold direct investments in individual companies and therefore would not have the opportunity to file or co-file a shareholder resolution or submit a letter about social or environmental responsibility to a company in which it directly holds investments. The USMF passed a resolution prohibiting direct investments in Sudan in 2006; this resolution remains in effect and requires negative screening.
