Comparing UND athletic spending to competing schools

Interesting piece on schools and $$ spent on women's sports.

Among the six schools in this study, UND is the biggest spender on female athletic scholarships at $2,156,606. None of the five other schools spend more than $2,000,000 on female scholarship

Quote

Those undergraduate figures are important because one of the compliance factors of Title IX is to "provide participation opportunities for women and men that are substantially proportionate to their respective rates of enrollment of full-time undergraduate students."

Per the article, based on UND's full-time undergraduate gender distribution (46.2% female), UND is perhaps spending an excessive percentage on female athletic scholarships at 50.5% of total athletics scholarship budget.  

For comparison, the article states NDSU has a full-time undergraduate female distribution of 43.6% and spends 38.9% of its athletic scholarship budget on female athletic scholarships. 

So, bottom-line, UND spends a greater relative percentage of total scholarship dollars whereas NDSU spends a lesser relative percentage. 

Theoretically speaking, if UND dropped the female scholarship budget by 4%, that would free up approximately $170,000; I know of several UND programs that could productively use that.....

It also should be noted that the 40 mens participants, mens coaching salaries and 5.5 mens scholarship cut were not taken into consideration for the future.

So the numbers in the article are obsolete and UND's already excessive Title IX compliance numbers will increase even more next year.

Unless we go FBS, and then Title IX compliance will be right on.

bubba deserves a raise....a big raise.

That he does, however the men's basketball team has a problem that needs to be addressed, extension or new coach. money will be a playmaker in that decision.

Save your money, or better yet donate it.  There sure seems to be a plan for some move with the men's in the UND athletic department!  Maybe this timing with this budget shortage is making it kind of awkward? Which like mentioned here before, might make UND publicly sound not interested at first. Maybe changes in football(FBS) and hockey (B1Ghc) will play out at the same time?

Or more factually, there is a glitch with Neulion that does that randomly.

I'm appalled that the women's golf coach is a sophomore while the men's coach is a freshman.  How dare they have a rookie men's head golf coach.   Thanks for pointing this out.

I think the OCR and US DoE have biggest issues to deal with than looking for that small minuscule of an issue

It's a template form from a service UND uses (pays for) to host their website. 

Complain to the hosting company for not having a better "coach" template.

I haven't heard any news since the Title IX people were digging into UND, I assume they haven't found nothing or else it would have hit the newsfeed by now. Also the Lameroux twins have been pretty silent lately, have they run out of crap to throw at their alma mater?

A Title IX review by US OCR takes six months at least. 

And as far as the twins, I'm still waiting for their proposed functional budget for UND. I'll start to listen again when they roll that out.

It's nice to see a bank with only a small presence in GF become a major sponor.  1st International Bank and Trust has major operations in the Bakken and other ND cities.  Thanks go out to the Stenehjems and their Watford City base.

The rumor is that First International is planning a bigger physical presence in Grand Forks.
