Endowment: Columbia vs. Peers

Columbia’s endowment, already lower than that of its academic peers, is especially lacking in terms of endowment per student. The University must increase the percentage of its annual revenues supported by endowment in order to become less reliant on tuition.

Our annual budget of approximately $2.4 billion supports a community of more than 3,000 faculty, more than 9,000 staff, and almost 24,000 students across 16 schools and various independent units across four distinct campuses.Total Endowment
