ETSU Student Athletic Fee Increases For Football Proposed

ETSU President Stanton announced on December 22, 2006 that the ETSU administration is now supporting the return of the ETSU NCAA Division I FCS football program to the university, after accepting the recent ETSU Football Task Force report calling for increased student athletic fees to both restore the ETSU football program and additional funding for equivalent female athletic programs in order to meet U.S. federal Title LX gender equity requirements. Dr. Staton has also stated that ETSU will "...need $4 million to $5 million" collected each year from of a combination students fees and private contributors to "...get it all done."[3] December 22 is the 356th day of the year (357th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. ...

Dr. Staton has also stated that ETSU generates approximately $500,000 of revenue from every $25 student athletic fees collected each semester at ETSU (i.e.: a conservative estimate of student fees fully funding ETSU football at the $5 million dollar level would amount to an additional $250 in ETSU student athleic fees each year).[5] During the last year of the ETSU football peogram in 2003, ETSU was only able to raise $127,000 (of the minimum $1.5 million needed) in private contributions toward the operating costs that will associated with the ETSU football program (excluding approximately $15 million dollars for a new 10,000 seat stadium).[6]
