Five Oregon Teams Achieve Perfect Graduation Success Rate
Five different University of Oregon athletics programs achieved a perfect Graduation Success Rate by student-athletes who enrolled at UO between 2011-14 and received athletics aid, according to annual data released by the NCAA today.
The five individual programs with a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 100 percent include women's basketball, women's golf, men's tennis, women's tennis, and acrobatics and tumbling. This is the fifth consecutive year with perfect Graduation Success Rates for both tennis programs and also the fourth year in a row with a 100 percent GSR for the women's golf program. Additionally, this is the second consecutive 100 percent GSR rate for the acrobatics and tumbling program.
The latest data reflects a cohort of student-athletes that entered the university beginning in 2011, the year after both the John E. Jaqua Academic Center for Student-Athletes opened and Rob Mullens assumed his current role as Oregon's athletic director.
"Oregon student-athletes continue to produce a high standard of achievement in the classroom," said Mullens. "Graduating our student-athletes remains our most important priority, and we are proud of their commitment in the classroom and the excellent results that are consistently produced. We also have an outstanding staff at the Jaqua Center, and we appreciate and thank them for all of their efforts and programming in assisting our student-athletes in achieving their goals and having a first-class experience."
The overall GSR for the UO athletic department is 83 percent, marking the 11th consecutive year that UO has had a GSR of 80 percent or higher. A total of 12 programs achieved a GSR of 80 percent or higher. Additionally, for all student-athletes who exhausted their eligibility at the University of Oregon, their GSR was 89 percent.
