The University of Wisconsin Athletic Board on Friday approved the athletic department's 2020-21 budget request, which totals more than $186 million in operating funds and capital projects.
The board unanimously voted in favor of the proposed budget, which also sailed through a committee on Feb. 12.
Projected operational expenses of $139.469 million next fiscal year is a 3.5% increase over the current year.
An increase in revenue from gift funds held for athletics at the UW Foundation will make up for the increased expenses.
