Stomping Out Sports Subsidies - Kaitlin Mulhere, Inside Higher Ed

Some Rutgers University sports fans, including state politicians, say that if the Scarlet Knights want to compete with the big-name programs in their new Big Ten athletic conference, the university has to pony up for improved facilities. But a legislative body on campus last week urged the opposite, recommending that the university postpone spending on any new projects until the athletics department solves a multiyear budget deficit. The University Senate voted overwhelmingly on Friday to back a report that recommends creating a five-year plan to reduce the amount of student fees and university funding that goes to the athletics department. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/03/31/university-senate-report-calls-rutgers-athletics-become-self-sustaining
