    Not to mention the elephant in the room that the majority of athletic scholarships go to minority students with low socieoeconomic status...

How much money did the theatre department cost? The robotics team? How much is spent on public art? Landscaping? Intramural sports?

      These things all enhance the college experience and attract students. They contribute to the community as a whole and not always directly. You don't have to attend a play or be one of the actors due your school to benifit from have a theatre program.

      Are those benefits sometimes exaggerated? Of course, but college sports weren't conceived with profit in mind to begin with. To cut them because they don't turn a profit seems ridiculous.
      are theatre department directors getting paid millions of dollars per year like athletic coaches are?

        Are they producing $15mm worth of revenue per year, along with immeasurable amounts of publicity and advertising for the school? Are they?

        Go troll the volleyball board bud.

          If they're producing all that revenue, then why do they need to swindle students and taxpayers? Should we increase student fees and taxes to provide more money for the theatre and robotics departments too?

              All of these are terrible ideas and this post should be deleted. We don't want their money, they have no obligation to provide us with anything and its stuff like this that gives them all the ammo about 'funding our programs'. Stop it.
              Deleting the post wasn’t an option to get more funding. I think at one point years ago the BOR talked about ISU and Iowa to supplement UNI in funding. What do you propose for ideas? Status quo? Drop sports programs or divisions?

                Could people then say the same about the athletic department and sports?

                  It was some crack pot State senator from NW Iowa that proposed that bill.

                  Status quo is fine at this point. We're raising as much money as we have at any point and doing just fine. Things will always be tight here.

                    This could get painful. Will be interesting to watch the impact to schools like UNI that don't have the TV money. Of course that TV money could look very different too.

                    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ls/2916805001/

                    NCAA slashes payouts to schools by $375 million in wake of coronarivus cancellations. The NCAA will reduce its direct distribution to Division I conferences and schools for 2020 by about $375 million to $225 million, the association announced Thursday.
                    If computers ruled college basketball the way they do football, we'd have skipped all this March Madness monotony and just waited a month for the Kansas-Kentucky title game. And watched Northern Iowa play Cornell in the Poulan Weedeater Bowl. ~ Dwight Perry The Seattle Times

                      Tbf, doesn't most of that money that conferences like the MVC earn go to the conference itself, only a fraction makes it to the school.

                        IIRC, the payout is divided 2 shares to the participating school, one share to other conference schools and one share to the MVC office.
