Men's and women's fencing, wrestling and women's skiing should not be eliminated from Brown's intercollegiate athletics program, President Ruth J. Simmons has recommended in her response to the April Report of the Athletics Review Committee.
Those teams, Simmons wrote in a nine-page response that she will present to the Brown University Corporation later this week, "should be given the chance to demonstrate that their supporters are able to endow their sport at the level deemed necessary by the University." As part of a plan aimed at putting "all team sports on a better financial footing," Brown athletic director Michael Goldberger "has proposed a five year period of time to allow teams to raise a total of $42 million in additional endowment funds," Simmons noted.
