University's endowment doesn't need to be increased
In my opinion, the article of the crisis in Notre Dame's finances announced by Father Malloy gives rise to some serious questions.
First, how much of an endowment will satisfy Father Malloy? The figure of 3 billion in the endowment fund leads one to think that Notre Dame will not be satisfied until it reaches the amount of the federal debt.
Does father Malloy wish to be the wealthiest university in all the world? Or does he expect the alumni to give eternally to Notre Dame? As it once was said, "what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose its soul?" Just wondering.
