Finalized ethical investing policy delayed until March

The release of the final version of the University’s ethical investment policy has been deferred to March following a string of postponements over the past seven months. The policy was originally set to be presented to the Board of Trustees in May of last year.

A rough draft of the policy was made public in October 2008, with the intention of receiving final approval from the Board in December.

Feedback gathered from the Queen’s community regarding the draft is currently being reviewed for the policy’s final presentation.
