Join the Conversation

When you bring diverse perspectives to the table, you make better decisions. With important decisions on the horizon, the views of our members are one of our greatest assets.

There are many ways to join the conversation, from attending a member event to our online feedback form.

This spring, we asked members to share their perspectives on UPP’s investment values through Listening Sessions at each university and introduced ourselves at an All-Member Information Session.

Listening Sessions 

Our Spring Listening sessions were designed to understand what matters to you when it comes to our investment approach. It was important to us to start by hearing your perspectives and concerns, and the questions you wanted answers to. Your expressed views were an input to the development of UPP’s first Statement of Investment Policies & Procedures (‘SIPP’).

Recordings of UPP’s remarks at those sessions are posted below for members to view at their convenience, and comment on as they wish through our online feedback form. Note: to protect the privacy of our members, the ‘member voices’ section has been removed from the recording.

All-Member Information Session

We hosted an All-Member Information Session on May 27, 2021, to introduce some of UPP’s leaders and share key information on the UPP plan and what to expect on Day One and thereafter. The recording is also posted below. Note: to protect the privacy of our members, the ‘member voices’ section has been removed from the recording.

View the engagement welcome message from our Board Chair and CEO.

In Fall 2021, we will continue the dialogue through additional Town Halls and an all-member survey. Dates will be announced in the coming months.

Your perspectives are important to us – please use this form to share with us anytime.

Note: The protection of your personal data and privacy is important to us. For more information, read our Privacy Statement.
