Should College Sports Get the Ax?
Wall Street Journal - 07/29/2020
In addition to narrowing the educational opportunities afforded to individual students, cutting an arts program or a varsity sport threatens the health of those disciplines for the rest of society. If we lose collegiate rowing, the sport as a whole will be damaged. As guarantors of a living cultural trust, higher education has a duty to support athletics and continue its rich legacy at the collegiate level.
