Proposed by Professor Mark Killingsworth
Amended and Adopted
by the New Brunswick Faculty Council
March 30, 2012
- We ask the University administration to report annually to
the faculty on its three-year plan for the athletic budget. The first such report, to be presented no
later than June 15, 2012, would review the fiscal years 2011, 2012 and 2013,
and would discuss, in particular, the projected University subsidy and student
fee allocation for athletics in these years.
- We call on the University administration and the Board of
Governors to freeze the dollar amount of the University subsidy for fiscal 2013
at the level planned for fiscal 2012, and to reduce the subsidy amount in every
subsequent fiscal year until, as of fiscal 2016, the subsidy is no more than
$13 million (approximately $1 million below the average level of the subsidy
during fiscal years 2005-2007).
- We ask that the question of compulsory student fee
allocations for the athletic program be put to a student
referendum no later than September 30, 2012.
