Expected Investment in Grand Initiatives

Renewal represents an estimated infusion of $125M investment from the reallocation of operating funds, private philanthropy, endowment-focused enhancements, restructuring of outstanding debt and incremental borrowing. The University Endowment is anticipated to rise from $94M to $142M during Renewal. The current priorities, project scope, high level cost estimates, and revenue sources will be reviewed annually in light of funding generation, updated prioritization of impact, and return on investment.
