US colleges and universities hold over $500 billion in endowment assets—a sum with purposes and values that are poorly understood by an array of stakeholders. The urgency of greater public understanding of these funds was punctuated in 2018 when federal tax reforms included a first-of-its-kind tax on private college and university endowments. With findings from new research from AGB and the Urban Institute in partnership with TIAA Institute, this session will address the question: What should every university and system board member know and be prepared to discuss with stakeholders when it comes to endowments?
