Past Members


The purpose of the IEN Trustee Peer Group is to accelerate IEN’s work of supporting colleges and universities in their endeavor to have their investment practices reflect their mission while meeting the endowment’s risk and return objectives.

Members of the Trustee Peer Group undertake and enable peer-to-peer connections among endowment trustees and actively serve as ambassadors for IEN.
