The Sustainable Investing Advisory Committee (SIAC) is a student organization that works to develop investment guidelines in partnership with the Student Equity Management Group (SEMG) and the Fixed Income Management Group (FIMG). The investment guidelines will in turn help these student groups to incorporate environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) analysis into their investment decision-making. The groups invest funds provided by, and on behalf of, The Ohio University Foundation.  SIAC is supervised by faculty and sustainability advisors, and is supported by a Graduate Assistant in the Office of Sustainability. All three student groups report to The Ohio University Foundation.
