I.
Athletic Program Status



Dr. Campos informed the Athletic Advisory
Committee that last year they became aware of
some concerns in the Athletic Department. One
of the situations had to do with the baseball
fund-raising. Weekly meetings are being held to
ensure all fundraising is on the right track.
The other situation was having an ineligible
student suited out in uniform and traveling with
the team. Although the athlete did not play
during any games while ineligible, it was
emphasized by Dr. Campos that we need to
follow all the rules. When the situation arose the
administration contacted the NJCAA regarding
this issue and NJCAA office confirmed that
EPCC had violated the rule. A series of
documents were sent to the NJCAA. There is
another deadline in February 2009 at which time
a report must be submitted. EPCC is committed
to continue the athletic program; therefore, we
must make sure that we follow all the NJCAA
guidelines.
Mr. Sears asked about the baseball coached and
when his last day was. He inquired if the team
made the play offs, would the coach would be
coaching the team. Dr. Campos informed the
committee that May is the last month for the
baseball coach. If the team makes the play-offs,
they will extend his time so that the coach can
coach his team.

E.
the Athletic Department will need additional
funds to continue the scholarships that currently
are offered.
Budget Update
Felix Hinojosa informed the committee
members that currently the Athletic Budget is
on track. Since it is based on enrollment, if
enrollment goes down, the budget will need to
be modified accordingly.
III.

Financial Report

Ms. Shaughnessy provided the budget report for
the Athletic Programs which is funded by
student fees. The Athletic department receives
$3 for every student enrolled and $1 per credit
hour per semester. If the $1 per credit hour is
raised by $.50 the Athletic Department will
receive approximately $250,000 more.

All baseball and softball fundraising is used to
offset the budget when they have over spent in a
certain area.

The Auxiliary Fund loaned the Baseball Program
$386,000 to help cover the cost of the baseball
turf. This loan must be repaid to the Auxiliary
Fund.

The Auxiliary Budget is not like other budgets.
It is funded by revenue from food services,
vending machines, and the bookstore.
IV.
V.
Considering the impact of a tuition increase on
the Athletic Budget, the Athletic Department
should make a recommendation (with
justification) to the Tuition & Fees Committee
and the Student Government Association that
they evaluate the merits of the proposed increase
in fees for athletics. When Felix Hinojosa
presents the recommendation, he must explain
why the increase is needed. The
recommendation for increase must be made by
January 2009 in order to have enough time to go
through the approval channels to meet the March
printing deadline for the fall class schedules.
New Business

Mr. De La Rosa inquired about facilities out in
the baseball and softball fields. Dr. Campos told
the committee that the fire technology facility is
being constructed between the baseball and
softball facilities; the new facility will have
restrooms and water fountains that both baseball
and softball could use.

Ms. Traffansted encouraged the student reps to
start promoting athletics more to gain additional
support from EPCC students.

Mr. Sears said that the athletes, not coaches,
should go the Faculty Development meetings to
talk with faculty about their schedules. The
student reps agreed that this is something that
they should do. Mr. Sears, Ms. Shaughnessy, and
Mr. Hinojosa will be talk with their respective
deans to make the arrangements for these
athletes to talk during faculty development
meetings.

Ms. Silva wants to see if the athletes can go into
the classrooms and visit with the students about
their games.

Mr. De La Rosa asked about the role of the
cheerleaders. Ms. Jones informed him that the
cheerleaders are to promote the games and
community events.

Mr. De La Rosa said that if they do get people
out on the fields, they will need some shades.
Dr. Campos asked if SGA would be able to
provide this. The student reps will discuss this
with their coaches and get a quote on the shades.
Funding of 2009/10

When enrollment at the College goes up, the total
amount of student fees increases. If the student
enrollment goes down, the revenue from fees for
the Athletic Budget decreases. This is why the
Athletic Budget varies from year to year.

Dr. Campos informed the committee that the
Athletic Budget is really tight and Athletics must
make it work. It is imperative to carefully
budget for tuition increase that affect the
scholarship budget and salaries. Due to these
increased costs, the Athletic Department needs a
fee increase and assistance from the community
to help support the Athletic Program for the
coming year. The community can help the
Athletic Department with funds to manage the
program or the fields. It was noted that softball
received lumber and the manpower to put up the
wooden fence from the community. A fee
increase will help with increases in salaries and
tuition.

While tuition remained the same over the past
two years, the Athletic Department had sufficient
funds for scholarships. With tuition increasing,

II.
Athletic Fee Proposal
 Felix Hinojosa passed out the proposed budget for
the 2009-10 fiscal year and explained the budget to
all committee members. Mr. Hinojosa is proposing
that the student fee be increased from the $1 per
credit hour to $1.50 per credit hour. Mr. Hinojosa
stated the increase is necessary; with the tuition
increase the Athletic Department will not have
sufficient funds to cover the scholarships that the
department gives out to student-athletes. The
Athletic Committee must ensure that the Athletic
program, funded by the EPCC students, really is
self supporting.
only $24,000 for two athletic trainers and three
student-athlete trainers. If, for any reason, Border
Therapy decided not to provide the services next
year, it would cost the EPCC Athletic Department
about $45,000 to get a trainer.
 Dr. Campos mentioned that the Athletic
Department recruits student-athletes and tries to get
them to graduate with an Associate Degree within
two years. Then the students move on to attend
school and play sports at four-year universities.
 Mr. Hinojosa mentioned that the EPCC Class
Schedule gives the total tuition and how much help
students can get for books. The total amount that a
student may receive for books is $350; many books
cost over $100.
 Mr. Hinojosa also stated there is a need to have a
separate account within the Athletic Budget to
cover any regional tournaments for which the
teams qualify.
 Ms. Traffansted inquired about travel by the teams.
Baseball and softball teams travel by charter bus,
the cross country team travels in 15-passenger vans
and then flies to the Cross Country Nationals and
½ Marathon Championship.
 Ms. Traffansted asked about the amount received
by athletes for meals. Ms. Nuanes told her that
they received $15 per day. Ms. Traffansted had a
problem with that, she said, because all other
departments in the college are getting $30 per day
and flying rather than driving. Ms. Traffansted
wanted to know why the Athletic Department was
giving them so little to the students. Mr. Hinojosa
informed her that there was not enough money in
the Athletic budget to give them the $30 per day.
 Darcy Traffansted said she disagreed with the $.50
increase for Athletics in addition to the 5% tuition
increase. Ms. Shaughnessy informed Ms.
Traffansted that the $.50 per credit hour increase
for Athletics needs to be considered separate from
the other tuition increase. Ms. Traffansted
understands the tuition has not been increased in
three years, but feels that it is too much for the

that he was not aware that this survey was
coming up until he received it in his mailbox.

Shaughnessy said that before we can have an
increase, it first needs to go to the Tuition and

to recommend to the president a tuition increase. An
increase presentation should be made to SGA. For
background purposes, Dr. Campos asked if students
were told about the athletic fee they currently pay
prior to the fee implementation? She also asked if it
was presented as a temporary or permanent fee. She
was informed that students were given a survey to
assess whether or not they would accept the
increase. The students supported the athletic fee
increase on a permanent basis. John Burch would
like a presentation on the proposed athletic fee
increase to show how this increase will affect the
students. Mr. Gorski asked if the funding for the
turf included the bleachers and lights. Ms.
Shaughnessy and Dr. Campos stated that bleachers
and lights were not included; .those two items could
not happen until there is additional funding. Mr.
Hinojosa said Mr. Nugent is working on phase II
and phase III.
Difficulties with the Athletic Budget were discussed.
At the current repayment rate, it will take 10 years to
pay off the loan for the turf. The loan must be
repaid before bleachers and lights can be purchased.
The importance of finding a way to pay off the loan
for the turf as soon as possible was stressed. John
Birch asked to see if our teams have spoken to
community reps to see if they can help with funding.
VI.
Felix was asked to explain at faculty development to
faculty how the Athletic Department functions. This
way they know about the role of the athlete and the
role of the instructor are. Hazel Silva recommended
that Felix contact Carina Ramirez so that Felix
Hinojosa can address the Faculty Senate. They also
suggested that a flyer be given to the division
offices.
VII.
New Business
Yvette Chuca asked why the Athletic Department
had changed their colors. Mr. Hinojosa said no
color was changed. He stated that the school colors
were black/white. The only thing that they did was
to add orange as an accent color. It is very hard to
get teal on the uniforms, plus it is very expensive.
Ms. Chuca said that the way the Tejano Tribune
presented the color change made it seem that they
had changed the school colors.

Class attendance – The committee was informed of the
District policy on authorized absences from class due
to college sponsored activities. There are occasions
when an instructor doesn’t know about this policy. It
was recommended that this is a topic that could be
discussion during Faculty Development. Also mention
was the fact that this could be send via email to all
instructors, except for part-time instructors.
B.
Student Athletic Academic Reports – The committee
was informed that this was recommended by SACS.
The reports were going out three times a semester, but
now two times a semester. Reason was that the first
report usually in the first part of September and
February had very little response and was too early in
the semester. The three faculty representatives were

E.
The EPCCCD web page. Discussion on this topic

“Athletes” on their home page. The only schools that
didn’t were Western Texas College and El Paso CC.
The athlete department receives inquires on how to
find the athletic site on the EPCC web page. It is
easier for a potential student-athlete to find the
athletics web site when the link is located on the
“Home Page”. The committee has recommended that
EPCC establish a link for athletics on its home page.
OTHER BUSINESS:
The discussion of GPA requirements for the award of athletic
scholarship. EPCC established a policy that all studentathletes who receive an athletic scholarship must maintain an
overall GPA of 2.00 or better per each full time semester in
intervals of 12 hours per semester. This was established
when the NJCAA had an eligibility GPA of 1.75.

scholarship to 2.25.
