TRU publishes investment details online

Thompson Rivers University has published its investment details online and pledged to post its investments going forward to demonstrate a commitment to socially responsible investing. While TRU states that the university already follows socially responsible investment practices including the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), it added that this move is intended to respond to the growing public interest in Canadian universities’ financial practices. TRU VP of Finance and Admin Matt Milovick explained that the move is essential to demonstrating transparency, adding that “we expect our investments to support the making of a better world.”
