SHOW ME THE RECORDS: How much did universities spend on athletics?

Monday, June 14, 2010 | 12:01 a.m. CDT

You can learn a lot about your community, state and country. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

Each week the Missourian will feature another open record. This week:

The Record: A list of Division 1 schools and the percentage of money each allocated to athletics in 2006. The data was compiled from the U.S. Department of Education by the Center for College Affordability & Productivity.

Why you’d want them: To learn how much of the money MU has spent on athletics and how it compares to other schools.

Where you get the records: The statistics are online at the centerforcollegeaffordability.org. Then click on “Publications” and go to “Sports Spending Data.”

How much it will cost: The information is free.
