Changes over time:
Increases and decreases in a division’s funding can be misleading, as these are sometimes the result of internal reorganization (for example, Enrollment Management used to be part of Academic Affairs, Radio/TV moved from IT to Public Affairs, etc).
However, even taking reorganizations into account, Academic Affairs (including Enrollment Management) has only seen an 83% increase since 2004, while Athletics has increased by 137%, and “University Wide” (including bond payments) by 235%.
