The president has charged several university committees with engaging the campus community and providing strategic counsel. Members of these committees include faculty, students, staff, alumni, and trustees, appointed by the president for limited terms.

The Advisory Committee on Investment Responsibility is a university body advisory to the President with the following functions:

a) Receive issues referred to it by members of the Duke community
b) Monitor trends and activities in investment responsibility that have an impact on educational institutional investors
c) Conduct research, update Duke’s files on companies, and provide analyses when requested by the President
d) Make recommendations to the President on how to vote proxies when the committee believes proxies should be voted outside the standard protocol of “economic interest;” whether to sponsor shareholder resolutions; whether to correspond with the management of corporations in which the University holds an identifiable equity position; when to divest; and on any new issues, which may warrant attention.

Term: 2 years.
