Lapovsky, Lucie
New Directions for Higher Education, n140 p99-110 Win 2007
Governing boards and administrations wrestle with complex endowment policy decisions that will determine current institutional quality and future institutional viability. This chapter presents data from the 2006 NACUBO Endowment Study (published in 2007), divided into the following issues of endowment management: historical returns; endowment growth; asset allocation and investment returns; percentage of operating budget supported by endowment income; endowment spending policies; and current spending versus accumulation. (Contains 9 tables.)
