This topic has nothing to do with College Sports and Conference Realignment. None of the SUNY athletics teams will move conferences or be affected in any other way because of this.

So the SUNY's gaining enrollment and athletic dollars doesn't pertain to possible conference changes or athletic offerings?

Ok, try this. It may reduce the scholarship cost burden on the athletic departments, as the cost of scholarships would go to zero. Could increase the number of quality walk ons as well.

Except it won't. The students will still be charged tuition, and the tuition will be forgiven years after they graduate. So the Athletic Department will still have to fund a scholarship for the student.

Right. And even if this proposal paid for the tuition portion of the student's costs up-front, that's still not any kind of majority of the athletic dept budget.



You guys are essentially arguing that the Ivy League need-based model will increase athletic quality! 01-wingedeagle

But in the long run this could hurt the SUNYs because taxes will have to be raised to fund this program, and New York is already seeing people flee from the high cost of living. And the only people who will stay because of this program are the low-productivity workers who won't benefit from moving out of state.

Yeah, I don't want to think about the costs. Infrastructure, staffing, and then shoving the burden even further onto out-of-state students.

It's a conundrum. I worked for a really good public school, and while the students got a good product with stellar faculty, the overall morale at the place blew. Felt entitled to Ivy League service and features, would promote working at the place like it was a private liberal arts school, but would throw your state title and the civil service hierarchy at you in an instant. Faculty, administrators, and staff leave, and then find better prospects in these "downgrade" institutions, but, again, find success and lose the hypocritical nonsense. So, you can fool some people with that nonsense when you recruit...after awhile, the secret's out (thank heavens for the internet), and now you have a school who can't get what it wants in staffing and faculty because it doesn't respect the people they have (who they wanted just the same before they could get them).

What I really don't envy is what is to become of Stony Brook. Those guys went straight up so fast...this only makes it all the more competitive and perhaps issue prone. When I graduated high school, I would have gotten in without a hiccup. Today, I might not. That's less than twenty years, and that kind of change in an arena that is known for its glacial speed for change? Man, I bet the faculty there are miserable, even the tenured ones (because, even though you have that, you have department chairs and deans calling HR trying to lure you to retire to give up your staffing spot).

I used to love the idea of good public education. I'm afraid I'm no longer embracing that. I know how the sausage is made all too well now.

It's essentially a state subsidy for public ADs to the extent that the athletes happen to stay in NY. It also probably does help w/ walk-ons.

It adds to the money being thrown at a fixed number of college seats. Net effect higher price of tuition, greater debt for students and higher taxes.

This does not address the fundamental issue which is the number of residential seats and the availability of industry useful major slots.

1) I don't immediately see how this raises tuition.
2) I think that the theory is that keeping talent/innivation at home will eventually lead to higher taxes, so the program will be self-funding.

I think that there are significantly better ways of doing what they're doing, but that isn't my call to make.

Why wouldn't they raise in-state tuition?? The students won't be paying it.

I thought that you meant from the students' perspectives.

That line of thinking only impacts in-state students, and they're offered a ride for free if they stay in state.

I misunderstood you.

Tuition will raise, but indirectly. It means the State will be subsidizing via the inefficient way of Student loans. As an economic scheme this is idiotic.

Fundamentally it raises taxes by increasing the State commitment to the schools. That isnj't magic money, it comes from somewhere.

Again the biggest reason this is inefficient is the State funding via such a scheme is not directed. This will not go to improve the schools, just operations. It means ZERO new seats, ZERO new professors. It does not fix the problems, it merely shuffles at the margins who might get one of those seats.
