Tribal college drops all sports
March 10, 2023
College sports will no longer be part of Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, according to a letter from acting president Anita Hanson.
Hanson said it was a difficult decision, but she decided to discontinue the athletics program there, including men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and women’s volleyball. Football had already been eliminated.
“Following conversations with campus leadership, the college’s athletic director, head coaches, staff, and faculty, it has been determined that funding currently used for athletics should be reallocated to provide new opportunities to benefit a larger percentage of students,” Hanson wrote last week in a letter to staff and students. “Next week, student leadership will be consulted regarding future programming ideas.”
