The Investment Committee is responsible for reviewing and managing their endowment fund and assets while making recommendations for changes that will best serve the interest of the school's investment objectives.

Under the leadership of Blatt, the Investment Committee will meet four times a year to review and discuss the positions of the school's investments, make recommendations for adjustments and shifts when appropriate, submit those recommendations to the Executive Committee, and finally to the full Board of Directors for approval.
