Raise funds to keep all sports, board says

Two committees of the U.Va. Board of Visitors unanimously approved a resolution directing the University's administration to develop options, including ones for fundraising, that would ensure the long-term financial stability of U.Va.'s athletics programs without creating tiers or eliminating any sports.

The Student Affairs & Athletics Committee and the Finance Committee jointly met June 4 to consider the recommendations contained in the recently released Virginia 2020 Strategic Planning Task Force Report on Athletics.

Gordon F. Rainey Jr., chair of the Student Affairs & Athletics Committee, commended the task force for alerting the University to the issues facing athletics programs across the nation. "While the task force report contains a number of valuable recommendations, those relating to tiering or eliminating sports have been rejected by the two committees as not being in the best interests of the University," he said. "The committees' action today is intended to make crystal clear that the Board of Visitors does not support tiering or eliminating any sports."
