Investment Committee

The Investment Committee has general oversight of the investments of the university and has the authority when, in its opinion, the best interests of the university justify such action to authorize the sale of any securities owned by the university; to authorize the purchase of any securities in which the funds of the university should—in its judgment—be invested; and to approve other investment strategies; and makes appropriate recommendations to the Board of Trustees or its Executive Committee.
