Debt Management

Amherst College issues debt to fund capital projects and liquidity support.  The issuance process and post-issuance compliance is the responsibility of the Treasury Department of the College.  Debt financing allows the institution to pay for an asset over a period of time, matching the repayment stream against the approximate useful economic life of the debt-financed asset.  Because debt represents a scarce resource, its use should be limited to projects that relate to the College‚Äôs mission and strategic objectives.
