The Advisory Committee on Investment Responsibility

       The Board of Trustees recognizes that Duke University’s ability to meet its educational mission and financial goals requires enhancing the value of the endowment over the long term by investing in companies that achieve real growth. It also recognizes the importance of ethical practices. The Advisory Committee on Investment Responsibility (ACIR) assists the President in making recommendations to the Board of Trustees in keeping with the Board’s Guideline on Investment Responsibility.

       The ACIR provides advice and recommendations about responsible investing, but it does not manage Duke’s Foundation or its investments in any way.  The company that does is DUMAC.  Viewers should review DUMAC’s website to familiarize themselves with how Duke’s investments are managed
