Dartmouth College, Advisory Committee on Investor Responsibility records, 1971 - 1986Manuscript DA-328

Introduction

The Advisory Committee on Investor Responsibility was established in the early 1970's in an advisory capacity to the President, Treasurer, and the Board of Trustees. For nearly 20 years, its primary focus was was investigating the College's investment practices relating to companies doing business in South Africa, the financial impact of divesting from those companies, and the use of investment policy in making social and political statements. In November 1989, the Board voted to fully divest the College's South African investments, and shortly afterwards, the ACIR became inactive. The majority of the Committee's files from this time period were those maintained by Professor Wayne Broehl of the Tuck School.

In 2003, the Committee was reconvened by President James Wright.
