The final report for the 2017 NACUBO-Commonfund Study of Endowments (NCSE) is now available in the NACUBO online bookstore. The publication is based on 809 U.S. college and university endowments and affiliated foundations that participated in the 2017 study. Collectively, these institutions held more than $566 billion in endowment assets at the end of FY17.

The 2017 report provides more than 60 tables and figures that show college and university endowment net investment rates of return, asset allocations, investment policies, fund flows and long-term debt, as well as other details regarding endowment performance and management, by endowment size and type of institution.

All staff at institutions that participated in the study may access the report for free. For more information, please contact NES@nacubo.org. Staff at non-participating institutions may purchase the study online.
