Lauffer's state of the union
by Joe Motillo
On Tuesday, January 26, I sat
with Behrend Athletic Director,
Herb Lauffer, and talked about the
Behrend Athletic program, the
NCAA, and the state of collegiate
j M : With Behrend
expanding, how do you
look at the athletic
HL: Of course there are several
things that are taking place now
within the University through the
Futures Committee process, and
like other units of the
University, we have been asked
as Behrend College or Penn State
Erie to look at ways that we can
cut . We don't think that model
fits us. Our administration is
working hard to convince the
University that in fact we are
underfunded. I don't know how
we are going to fare through this
budget process. First of all as an
institution, and secondly within
the area of athletics. Our goal is
to increase the number of
intercollegiate sports that we
offer our students. We have done
some informal surveying, both
within the department and
through our student athletic
advisory committee. It secms,of
course, what we can do short
term is driven by facilities and to
some extent probably driven by
what the NCAA has in the way
of championships to offer various
sports. Our short term goal is to
add to our athletics program, not
to decrease it. We probably would
be looking at outdoor activities
first because of the space
constraints in Erie Hall. Once we
could get a new multi-purpose
facility, then we would look at
additional indoor sports.
Depending on how that is

designed and set up. The Athletic
Department and the upper
administration are definitely
thinking about increasing the
sports offered on this campus.
,IM: You mentioned adding
outdoor Sports, anything
HL: The areas that we are
looking at and think we can
accommodate are women's soccer
and men's and women's cross
country. We have modest field
space, and it would be adequate
to accommodate women's soccer
in the fall to run jointly with the
men's. We have the terrain of the
college, excellent trails, and some
other flat space that we could take
advantage of to offer men's and
women's cross country.
JM: What is your hardest
task as athletic director?
HL: I guess that I don't know.
Hardest task? That is, the one
that I think about the most.
Budgeting is difficult. We
operate on a philosophy that we
want all programs to really be
successful. We want members of
our staff to feel like they are
properly funded and properly
supported, at least to the best of
our means, so that they can
achieve success like anyone else
within the program. We want to
be sure that we are fair to them
and provide for them equal
opportunities for success.
JM: What is the biggest
problem in your mind in
college athletics today?
[IL: I think that it's money.
Their are a lot of violations that
occur, particularly in the big time
Division I institutions, because
of budget and budget problems
and trying to make the athletic
program pay its own way. The
answer to that is to try to get
