The UI Athletics Department is responsible for generating 100 percent of the revenue required to successfully operate its 24 sports programs and auxiliary enterprises, e.g. the Department receives no General Education Funds ("tax dollars"). It became 100 percent self-supporting in 2007-08.


Facilities that compare favorably with our peers in the Big Ten Conference and nationally are critical to the success of the Department.
