No

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 SOU Foundation has an investment committee whose objective is to achieve long-term performance in order to provide inter-generational equity through our endowment fund. In conjunction with an investment consultant, the committee makes investments that take into account, risk, diversification, total return, and how they correlate with University priorities, including sustainability commitments. Environmental issues are addressed in SOU's Strategic Plan, which the Foundation supports, though it does not currently include social and environmental responsibility as an explicit part of its mission and/or agenda.

The Finance Committee has met with students in regard to socially responsible investing and are open to setting up a socially responsible investment pool should a donor express interest in such investments.
