Revenues and Expenditures in Intercollegiate Athletics: The Feasibility of Collecting National Data by Sport. A Report Submitted to Congress by Lamar Alexander.
Office of Educational Research and Improvement (ED), Washington, DC. Office of Research.
This document presents the text of a study required by Section 105 of the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990. The study addresses the feasibility of collecting and reporting national data from institutions of higher education on revenues and expenditures in intercollegiate athletics and athletic departments on a sport-by-sport basis. The report first provides the definitions of the elements of revenue and expenditure within the context of intercollegiate sports; and then examines whether one can trace these elements within each sporting function, the activities within those functions (e.g. recruiting), and the objects (e.g. travel) within these activities. Lists of revenues and expenditures are presented and analyzed based on several national surveys and their reports, such as the Raiborn reports, and discussions with the institutions. The report concludes with recommendations concerning the steps required to incorporate some athletic program revenue and/or expenditure data collection into the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. Contains approximately 40 references. (GLR)
