JOB OPENING: Development Director, Responsible Endowments Coalition, New York, NY

Feb 04 03:53PM -0800 ^

The Responsible Endowments Coalition (REC) was founded in 2004 by
students who believed that colleges and universities should be
investing their collective $350 billion for the good of society. REC
encourages institutions of higher education to invest their endowments
with the values of the institution in mind and with the goals of
promoting social and environmental justice. Because of their role in
society, their tax-exempt status, and their large endowments,
universities have the ability to have a large influence on
corporations and on how money is invested more broadly.

REC supports students and other community members as they confront
corporate abuse and address a wide variety of issues like sweatshop
labor, environmental destruction, and discrimination. Campus
organizers also encourage institutional accountability to the
communities in which they live and learn by bringing responsible
investment practices to their campuses through education, organizing
support and networking.
