Cornell announced Tuesday that it earned a return of 15.8 percent on its endowment during the 2014 fiscal year, marking a more than four-percent increase from fiscal year 2013.
This figure stands in stark contrast to the University’s endowment return just two years ago, when Cornell saw only a 0.14 percent gain during the 2012 fiscal year. This is the second year in a row where Cornell saw a return in the double digits.
