In a way to save money, Central Connecticut State University has announced some changes to its athletics department.
The proposed plan would eliminate the men and women’s golf programs by the end of this year.
The school would also remain a Division I NCAA Program.
School officials said last year in May, officials formed a task force to study the sustainability of the school’s athletics program.
“Key elements of the charge were to develop recommendations for how the athletics program can optimally support the following institutional goals: explore how athletics provides a sense of community on campus, enhances CCSU’s relationships with alumni and the local community, enables CCSU to remain an affordable choice, and enhances the academic experience for all CCSU students,” a press release said.
More key elements of the plan include:
“It was not an easy decision by any means, and I’m sure I speak for the rest of the Central Family when I say that we regret that we will be eliminating two sports teams. I sympathize with the student-athletes and the coaches of those teams who will no longer be able to pursue their competitive sports aspirations at CCSU. I appreciate their gracious acceptance. And I thank the students and their coaches for their cooperation," said CCSU President Zulma R. Toro in a press release.?
