FAU Athletic Director Angelos defends budget


FAU Athletic Director Angelos defends budget

“All other expenses including salaries were flat. We also furloughed all employees four days and laid off some staff members,” Angelos said.

He said with FAU’s planned stadium, the university is working to create a model where athletics is supported more from outside sources than student fees. But he said the fee increases just help the university maintain the status quo.

“If there needs to be a discussion of whether universities think it is time to devalue or downgrade their athletic programs, that is another story,” he said. “However, with athletics many times being the" front porch" to the university and arguably the most visible, it may be a tricky exercise. “
