Responsible Investing

1986 computer lab with cool reflections off windowsThe Wellesley College Board of Trustees is responsible for the investment of the College’s endowment.

One aspect of fulfilling this responsibility is voting the proxies of securities held in the endowment. The College has long been active in voting proxies in the belief that the proxy voting process is a means of encouraging corporate actions that enhance shareholder value and promote sound and principled corporate governance.
Wellesley College is committed to discharging its fiduciary duty and being a responsible shareholder by voting the proxies of shares held in the endowment in a way that is consistent with the College's ethics and principles.
