University press publishing is driven by mission, not profit. Scholarly books do not always recover their costs from the market alone, and so the Press is fortunate to have donor-sponsored endowments that generously support publication in a variety of subjects and allow for special features to enhance the presentation of essential materials. The impact of these funds on our program is significant, as approximately half of our books in any year are subsidized by our endowments.
