Investor Information Relations

The university sells tax-exempt and taxable debt to external bondholders to finance capital projects and working capital.  

The tax-exempt debt is issued through the Dormitory Authority of New York State (DASNY) and the Tompkins County Industrial Development Agency (TCAD). This debt is used to finance capital projects. 

The taxable debt can be used to finance capital projects for which the university would neither use tax-exempt debt or nor finance working capital.
