The NIRI-NY chapter, in partnership with the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College, invites you to participate in our September kick-off program assessing Dodd-Frank’s accomplishments in year one.  We’ll discuss what has been implemented to date, which aspects of the bill are facing headwinds, and which areas are gaining momentum.

September 14th, Wednesday 9-10 pm: Hairy Monk

Come meet the other editors and contributors to the blog over a few cold ones at our “executive conference room” at the Hairy Monk.  The blog is a unique opportunity to make your voice heard, to get yourself noticed and to hone your writing.  Contribute your experience and opinions.  Here are some sample topics: Write in your native tongue and english to show off how diverse and international Baruch is; Write about a class or professor who influenced you or an instructor who shouldn’t be; Opine about the graduate experience; Share and compare your favorite watering holes; Expose what’s wrong at Baruch.

To paraphrase (with a boost) the words of the inimitable philosopher Bruce, Bust outta class, get away from those fools and come learn more from a 3-minute song (and from the bottom of glass) than you will ever learn from school.

September 15th, 8 am: 151 E 25th Rm 750 (Newman Library)

The Baruch Index of Corporate Political Disclosure was created by the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity to ensure accountability now that corporations have this political freedom of speech. The Baruch Index highlights those corporations that are transparent about their policies, practices, and giving, and shines a light on those that are not.
