Brown Socially Responsible Investment Fund (BSRI)

Starting in Fall 2009, BSRI will manage a $50,000 pool of University money, investing in companies and mutual funds that make a profit while bettering the world. Potential investments include green energy research firms, microfinance and community lending banks, medical and pharmaceutical companies, environmentally conscious retailers, and job training or education companies — and any firm that seeks to mitigate its environmental impact or improve the lives of its customers can qualify for consideration. The fund's members will choose and evaluate potential investments, and ultimately all decisions will be made by Brown students.
