The University of Notre Dame endowment returned 19.7 percent for the year ending June 30, according to Scott Malpass, vice president and chief investment officer.
The endowment pool value grew from $8.3 billion on June 30, 2013, to $9.8 billion on June 30. The University benefited from spending distributions of some $300 million for the fiscal year.
Notre Dame’s longer term results are in the top tier of institutional investors. Over the past 10 years, the Notre Dame endowment achieved an annualized return of 11 percent.
At the core of the University of Notre Dame is an aspiration to become a preeminent research university with a distinctive Catholic mission and an unsurpassed undergraduate education. Those values will find expression in the new Digital Media Center, a component of the Campus Crossroads project.
