Student Conference: Community Investment at Colleges and Universities (FREE!)
Do you want your school to invest its endowment responsibly and respond to pressing social problems? Are you already working on a socially responsible investment campaign at your campus? Have you heard about community investment and want to learn more? Equity Trust, Inc., in collaboration with Students Transforming and Resisting Corporations (STARC) and Campus Compact, invites you to a weekend-long student conference on community investment at colleges and universities from November 1-3 in Voluntown, CT (40 minutes from Providence, RI). The purpose of the conference is to provide an opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with the practice and philosophy of community investment; discuss its appropriateness for colleges and universities; learn about past and present student-led community investment campaigns; strategize and network with other students; and gain access to resources that will help them organize a community investment campaign on their campus. The conference will include panels, forums, speakers, workshops, group discussions, videos, strategizing sessions and more. There is no fee for the conference. To register or for more information, please contact Mike Levien at Equity Trust. Ph:860-376-6174 (Tue. and Thurs.); 401-421-0231 (evenings and all other times).
