Uncertainty in athletic funding - Sean Cleary, Dakota Student

While some have celebrated President Kennedy’s email to campus saying no sports will be cut, the announcement left me with more questions than answers. Included in the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee’s (IAC) proposal to Kennedy were several specific recommendations for how to find the money to cover the expense of keeping all 20 sports at UND. These included increasing student fees, increasing institutional support of athletics by $7.3 million, increasing ticket prices by 25 percent and reducing the number of free tickets, increasing the share of revenue from ticket sales at the Ralph and Alerus Center.
