NKU's move to Div. I to cost an extra $3.5 million; president says it will be 'worth it'

Northern Kentucky University’s entrance into being a Division I school will mean about $3.5 million more in expenses that will be covered by a mix of athletics, ticket sales and university funding.
NKU President James Votruba said $1.5 million to $1.8 million will be shifted within the university to cover the costs. But he said he and the board of trustees evaluated whether the cost to jump to Division I and the Atlantic Sun Conference would jeopardize other university programs and functions. They determined it wouldn’t, Votruba said.
Votruba said the move will be advantageous to the university for myriad reasons:
