Report from Financial Services

Lawrence's endowment grew to $318 million this year, exceeding the $300 million level for the first time in      
our history. Generous gifts to the endowment support full-need scholarships, endowed faculty positions,       
academic programs and perpetual maintenance of parts of our campus. With our focus on a high-quality      
and accessible liberal arts education, we continue to work to minimize the growth of our comprehensive      
fees and be as efficient as possible in managing our expenses. We are very grateful to the Lawrence       
community for its gifts of time, talent and treasure in support of our mission.

—Christopher Lee,
Vice President for Finance and Administration
