The Investment Committee has direct oversight of the EWUF and works closely with Northern Trust Institutional Investment Services to select asset allocations.

In 2015 the EWU Board of Trustees updated its investment policy to reflect the Board’s commitment to socially responsible investing and align its policy to EWU’s status as a signatory to the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), a national pledge to address climate change. This investment policy states that at a minimum, the investment portfolio will reflect a goal of divestment of holdings in fossil fuels. To further its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, in 2017 EWU launched a full Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Plan which will serve as a guide for implementing more energy efficiency programs and tracking progress.
