Athletics Review 2013
A review of the Department of Athletics and Recreation took place in January 2013. Conducted by experts from Wilfrid Laurier University and Brock University, the review looked at all aspects of the department's operations since the implementation of a 2009 Business Plan to support the expansion and renovation of the Athletics Centre. The goal was to identify cost-saving opportunities and improved efficiencies to make the operation more financially viable.
The review acknowledged that, as an Ancillary operation, Trent Athletics is required to cover all operating costs, including: staffing, building operation and maintenance utilities, overheads, annual principal & interest payments. This model differs from many other Canadian and Ontario universities which provide funding to their athletics operations.
Two separate reports were produced, one on the varsity program and the other on Athletics Centre operations. Reports available below:
