The balance sheet presents the College’s financial position as of August 31, 2021. The College’s largest financial asset is its investment portfolio, representing 71% of total assets, with a fair market value of $512.7 million as of August 31, 2021.

In accordance with the policy, $17.7 million of investment return on the endowment portfolio was used to support operations in fiscal year 2021.
The College’s second largest and oldest asset is its physical plant, consisting of land, buildings, furniture and fixtures, and equipment. As of August 31, 2021, the net book value of plant assets was $128.5 million, representing 18% of the College’s total assets.
The College’s total liabilities of $192.8 million are substantially less than its assets. As of August 31, 2021, long-term debt represented the most significant liability at $95 million.
In accordance with FASB standards, the net assets of the College are classified as without or with donor restrictions. At August 31, 2021, the College’s net assets without donor restrictions totaled $170.9 million.
