The PRISM Group is a select group of undergraduate and graduate students who have the responsibility of managing a portion of the endowment fund of the University.

The group meets on Wednesday evenings throughout the year to discuss investment strategy and to make buy and sell decisions. The students must also explore the ethical ramifications of their decisions. PRISM stands for Portfolio of Responsible Investments under Student Management.

The value of the PRISM portfolio has increased from $100,000 in 2001 to approximately $850,000 today.

Associate Professor John Ruddy serves as the moderator of the group. For additional information, email
