If you're thinking about getting involved, CRIC is active all year long.
- Subscribe to our student interest email list at firstname.lastname@example.org (log on at lists.carleton.edu). That way, you'll stay up to date on CRIC's events on campus, as well as our general actions. (We are a committee representing you, after all!)
- Come and watch a meeting of the CRIC. Our meetings are lively and cover a broad range of issues, including all forms of SRI (socially responsible investing), definitions of Carleton's values, and other issues pertaining to the ethical management of our endowment. We always welcome your input!
- Attend a public forum and speak your mind. Throughout the year, CRIC has multiple public events, like townhall meetings and discussions. Just remember, you must connect the issues you care about with Carleton's values.
- Apply to join CRIC in the spring and work to address social, environmental, and governance issues in Carleton's endowment holdings. One of the CRIC's key responsibilities is recommending certain proxy votes to the Board of Trustees, which requires heavy amounts of research (see past reports for examples). We also have numerous new initiatives to engage our corporate connections, and we need fresh faces and ideas!
- This year ('12-'13) there will be 3-4 open seats for students on the committee. Please contact Bakhtawar Chaudhary '15 (email@example.com) or Duncan Sallstrom '15 (firstname.lastname@example.org), our student co-chairs, or Matthew Fitagerald '14, CSA President (email@example.com) for more more information.
- If you are interested in a faculty or staff position on the committee, please e-mail Joel Weisberg, faculty co-chair (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Stephanie Huston (email@example.com) in the President's Office, for more information.
- Look into how YOU invest!
- For students - if you currently are invested in anything, look into the policies guiding the companies and funds. Are they in line with your values? If a parent or guardian has money set aside for you, talk to them about how that money is being managed. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
- For faculty and staff - TIAA-CREF stuff
- E-mail us with thoughts, questions, and comments. We would love to hear from you! You can contact the entire group by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can e-mail Bakhtawar Chaudhary '15 (email@example.com) or Duncan Sallstrom '15 (firstname.lastname@example.org), our student co-chairs.
Thanks for checking us out, and we hope to hear from you soon.
