The Investment Stewardship Academy, Commonfund Institute’s three-day intensive academic program is set to resume in-person June 20-23 for the first time since 2019.  

For over 30 years, The Investment Stewardship Academy has been the preeminent venue for trustees and senior investment officers of endowed institutions to sharpen their fiduciary skills, acquire knowledge and deepen their understanding of the critical factors shaping the performance of long-term investment pools.  

This year's program will take a deep dive into the state of nonprofit institutional investing, explore governance and leadership and the future of endowment management.  Seasoned practitioners and subject matter experts will present key governance and investments strategies, policies and portfolio techniques and engage the class in lively discussions on public policy, investment strategy, risk, endowment spending, values-aligned investing, DEI and more.
