    interesting and informative graphic and a bit of a surprise to me:

    1). UA endowment much smaller than I thought
    2) How is that WSU does relatively well?

    3) At least we are ahead of OSU …

    So they want the endowment to be in the $1-1.3 B range. Not bad, not bad at all, but I thought the goal was to be in the top-25?

    4) The UC and a UT systems have some mad endowments at the system and then the UC schools also have large endowments.

    5) The authority on Endowments… Check out the NCES tables!
