Faculty Athletics Representative Makes Regular Reports to Faculty Senate An efficient link between the faculty athletics representative and the faculty senate is useful in assuring the faculty of accurate and timely information regarding the athletics program. Whether appointed by the chief executive officer or elected directly by the faculty, the faculty athletics representative commonly serves as a conduit of information to and from the faculty and the athletics program. It is common for the faculty athletics representative to report periodically to the faculty senate regarding the operation of the athletics program.

NCAA Division I Academic Reforms: Graduation Success Rate (GSR) Graduation Success Rate (GSR) The NCAA developed the Division I Graduation Success Rate in response to college and university presidents who wanted graduation data that more accurately reflect the mobility among all college students today. The GSR takes into account incoming transfers who graduate from a different institution than the one they started at and transfers who leave an institution in good standing. Calculations Freshmen + transfers - students leaving with academic eligibility

NCAA Division I Academic Reforms: Academic Progress Rate (APR) Academic Progress Rate (APR) – multi-year measurement of academic progress and an institution’s retention of student-athletes (those who receive athletics financial aid). The report is based on two factors: (1) eligibility/progress toward graduation and (2) retention. Calculations Total points earned by team (SA with institutional financial aid) / total points possible. Top Score = 1,000. Four-year average for multi year rate
NCAA Division I Academic Reforms: Academic Progress Rate (APR) During each regular academic term (a semester) of full time enrollment a student-athlete can earn two points towards his/her team’s APR score. 1.A student athlete will receive 1 point if, at the end of the semester, he/she is academically eligible to compete in the following regular academic term or has graduated. 2.A student-athlete can earn 1 point if he/she returns to the institution (retained) as a full-time student in the next regular academic term or graduates.
