In addition to general information about Penn State, the Fact Book contains a wide variety of information on students, faculty and staff, budget and finances, research expenditures, and alumni and development activities.
The Office of Investment Management is pleased to offer the following reports.
The University's investment funds include the endowment pool, as well as non-endowed and other endowment-like funds. The endowment pool is a commingled fund of endowment assets that is broadly diversified among stocks, bonds, venture capital, private equity, hedge funds, and real estate.
In addition to benchmarking against various market indices, the University compares asset allocation, spending policies, and investment returns against a peer group of universities that include the Big Ten schools and similar public universities in the mid-Atlantic region.
Careful management of the University's investments is critical to provide support for scholarships and program spending as well as the continued overall financial health of the University. The results enable Penn State to compete for the highest quality students and faculty.
