Budget raises questions about swim funding, athletics subsidy - Jonah Phillips, WKU Herald

The budget proposed for WKU Athletics for the coming year stands at $23.3 million spread over 15 NCAA teams – including more than $1 million allocated to the suspended swimming and diving program. That budget calls for a university subsidy of roughly $14.4 million to the athletics department – money that will come from WKU’s general fund to pay for costs not covered by ticket sales, NCAA allocations, private funding and other sources. The athletics budget, along with other university revenue and spending plans for 2015-16, will be considered for adoption by the WKU Board of Regents at its June 26 meeting and will cover the fiscal year that starts July 1.
