Progress and Accomplishments

2016-2017 Q3 Quarterly Report

Description Plan Staff Budget Allocation Expenses Balance

Support Titan Pride by providing funding for a Division I athletics program and over 400 student athletes appropriately. Titan Athletics plans to utilize SSI dollars to fund 89 full student athlete scholarships.  NCAA rules allow some sports programs to award less than a full scholarship to multiple students.  For example, one full scholarship in baseball could be broken up and awared as 4 one quarter scholarships to 4 different student athletes.  Because of this rule, over 150 student athletes are benefitting from the 89 full scholarships.  The Director of Compliance has confirmed that a full scholarship in 2016-17 is valued at approximately $21,300.  The ability to offer this aid will allow Titan Athletics to be competitive in the Big West conference and Division I in all sports. SSI Funds will also be used to provide funding to Athletics Academic Services to hire 2 graduate students and fund the Student Athlete LifeSkills program.

- Fund aid for fall 2016 semester for over 150 student athletes.

- Support fall 2016 programming costs for LifeSkills

- Hire graduate students for Athletics Academic Services
