Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The Responsible Investment Working Group (RIWG) placed a high priority on consultations and interviews with members of the university community and industry experts to assist working group members with understanding different perspectives on the ethical, legal, moral and financial aspects of investing of the pension and endowment funds. Consultations were conducted in the following ways:

  • Public call for written submissions;
  • Interviews with industry and on-campus experts; and
  • Public forums on Waterloo campus (March 7) and Brantford campus (March 8).

To help contributors prepare their submissions, they were asked to consider:

  1. What does “Responsible Investing” mean to you?
  2. Is Responsible Investing important to you and/or the university? Why?
  3. Beyond legal requirements, what key principles or factors should guide the university’s investment policies and procedures related to Responsible Investing?
  4. What assessment criteria should the university use to determine if its approach to Responsible Investing has been effective?

Industry and on-campus experts were also asked questions specific to their areas of expertise.
