Scott C. Malpass is vice president and chief investment officer at the University of Notre Dame. He oversees investment of the University's endowment, working capital and pension assets of now nearly $3 billion.


Having served as chief investment officer since 1989, Mr. Malpass works closely with the investment and finance committee of the University's Board of Trustees in managing the University's financial assets. These include an endowment valued at approximately $2.6 million - the 19th largest in American higher education and the largest at a Catholic university - as well
as the University's pension plan and various short-term assets.


For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2000, the endowment returned a record 57.9 percent, the highest return for any American university and the subject of extensive media coverage in The Wall Street Journal, The Chronicle of Higher Education, U.S. News & World Report, The New York Times, and on CNBC.


Mr. Malpass is a 1984 Notre Dame graduate and received a master of business administration degree from the University in 1986. He returned in 1988, from the Wall Street firm, Irving Trust company, and became chief investment officer the following year when the University's endowment stood at only $450 million.
