The Financial Health of Every University in the US

We’ve done an in-depth analysis of every university in the Unites States with a look at their financial health and ranked them all. You can access the monitor on either Daddy.Finance (or Tabs.Live) (our sister site).

Some general conclusions:

Those with the largest endowments have had much stronger returns. We also break down the growth in endowments and find that for the largest endowments most of the growth comes from investment returns rather than contributions. For smaller endowments, a larger portion of endowment growth comes from contributions (so contributions do matter!).

With coronavirus throwing the state of classes into question, we look at who is open for in-person classes. We find that universities in weaker financial positions are more likely to be planning for in-person classes in Fall 2020 than those better positioned.

Lastly, new funding is badly needed. Nearly a third of universities cannot cover a year’s worth of expenses with their net assets (in the absence of revenues).
