Statement From Advisory Committee On Shareholder Responsibility

The Advisory Committee on Shareholder Responsibility met on Sept. 7, 2006 and began its deliberations regarding MIT’s investments in multi-national companies that may be doing business in the Sudan. The committee’s charge is to make a recommendation to the MIT Executive Committee about whether any action should be taken with regard to these investments, and if so, what that action should be. The committee welcomes thoughtful input from the members of the community as it continues discussions in the next several weeks. Given the constraints of time and logistics, written communications would be preferred and can be sent to acsr@mit.edu.

Members of the Committee: Alan G. Spoon, Chair of the ACSR and Member of the Corporation; Barrie R. Zesiger, Member of the Corporation and the Executive Committee; Richard K. Lester PhD ’80, Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering and Director of the MIT Industrial Performance Center; James M. Poterba, Professor of Economics and Head of the Economics Department; Ann J. Wolpert, Director of the Libraries; Allan S. Bufferd, Treasurer, Emeritus; Andrew T. Lukmann ’07, Undergraduate Association President; Eric G. Weese G, President of the Graduate Student Council.

Staff to the Committee: Elizabeth M. Ogar, Director of Finance and Administration, Resource Development.
