The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics made its fall presentation to the Associated Students of CSU Student Fee Review Board Tuesday.
Philip Goldstein, associate director for business operations for the Department of Athletics, focused on how the national exposure that student athletics garner benefits the university.
“We provide a window to the University,” said Gary Ozzello, Assistant Director for Media Relations for the Athletic Department, who also spoke at the meeting. “We try to generate a positive image for CSU.”
At the meeting review board members were presented with free CSU football jackets.
The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is not responsible for recreation or intramural sports. It includes only intercollegiate sports, such as football, tennis and basketball.
The department also funds grants-in-aid for 246 students, including 140 full grants.
According to data presented at the meeting, an average of 45 percent of CSU students attend football games.
In the fall the review board hears presentations about programs, and during the spring semester they hear detailed budgets and decide on funding.
