MIDDLEBURY, Vt. (AP) - There's going to be a discussion at Vermont's Middlebury College about whether environmental and social concerns should influence investment policies of college and university endowments.
Tuesday evening's event at the McCullough Student Center is planned to be the first in a series of discussions about Middlebury's endowment.
The discussion will focus on what factors the college's board of trustees should consider in determining whether to place restrictions on how Middlebury's endowment is invested, and the advantages and disadvantages of using divestment as a means of addressing climate-related concerns.
The panelists will include Middlebury officials and investment professionals.
