Stewarding Elon’s commitment to remain a best-value university

Key objectives

  • Successfully complete the Ever Elon Campaign
  • Implement a strong, creative financial model
  • At least triple the Elon University endowment

Elon enjoys a remarkable combination of “values and value.” The university’s affordable cost is a major strategic asset, providing a tuition rate that is $10,000 – $15,000 below other private universities and within range of non-resident tuition rates at flagship state universities. Elon is committed to guarding that price advantage and implementing a balanced financial model.

The goal of The Elon Commitment is to complete the Ever Elon Campaign and launch the university’s next comprehensive campaign, tripling the university’s endowment by 2020 and building an essential financial base for future generations. A strong and sustainable new financial model will support and maintain Elon’s core values as it establishes budget priorities, undergraduate and graduate enrollment growth, tuition increases, new programs and program enhancements, a salary plan, new facility construction, and fund-raising goals.
