IRSR

The mission of the Office of Investment Responsibility Stakeholder Relations (IRSR) is to enhance Stanford's ability to manage and engage with the campus community on issues of investment responsibility. Reporting to the President's Office, IRSR serves as a single point of contact for the campus community and a liaison to university leadership.

APIRL
