IEN recently released a Roadmap for Intentionally Designed Endowments, a step by step process for aligning endowment investments with institutional mission, which grew out of the experiences of their network of colleges and universities.

At the event, we shared more about the roadmap, and heard University of New Hampshire stakeholders describe the why’s and how’s of the journey they are on to align investments with their campus-wide sustainability goals. Panelists included the Treasurer of the Foundation, a recent alum who is a member of their Committee on Investor Responsibility, and the Executive Director of their Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise. This panel was followed by Q&A, discussion, and networking time.
