Town Hall Update

March 20, 2014

After careful deliberation of the issues brought forth at the February 2014 Town Hall Forum, the SRI Advisory Council has committed to researching two ideas. The Advisory Council will continue to work on the proposal brought forth by a student last semester regarding UVM's holdings in Monsanto Company. This is especially relevant in light of the activity on GMO labeling in the Vermont Legislature. 

The SRI Advisory Council will also research and deliberate a role for the U.N. Principles for Responsible Investment, as proposed by a student. The U.N. Principles can be found here: http://www.unpri.org/

The SRI Advisory Council would like to thank the students, faculty and staff who attended the forum and especially those who contributed to the conversation. The next Town Hall will be in October 2014.
