Academic Spending versus Athletic Spending: Who Wins? Issue Brief
Desrochers, Donna M.
Delta Cost Project at American Institutes for Research
Athletics are big business on many college campuses, but does this come with a price tag? This issue brief looks at academic and athletic spending in NCAA Division I public universities between 2005 and 2010. Among a host of findings, this brief shows that the athletic departments of most public colleges and universities competing in NCAA Division I sports typically spend three to six times as much per athlete as their institutions spend to educate their students. Public Division I Institutions Included in the Analysis Sample are appended. (Contains 2 tables, 4 figures and 14 footnotes.)
