From the AD
With you on our team, we are producing record levels of success!
Our student-athletes continue to excel on and off the field. They achieved a record-setting overall GPA of 3.254 in the 2017 spring semester and for the first time over 70 percent of our student-athletes earned a 3.0 or better GPA.
UC recently placed among the top-85 schools in the final standings of the 2016-17 Learfield Director’s Cup standings that honors schools for achieving across the board success in athletics. It is the second-highest finish in school history and best since 2001-02. This positive trajectory of competitiveness represents a 375% increase since 2014!
Through alignment with committed partners on campus and within the community we are continuing to boldly position the Bearcats locally, regionally and nationally, allowing us to help elevate the University of Cincinnati’s excellent reputation with pride and distinction.
With leaders like you involved, we will sustain our upward momentum! Please enjoy reading details of our collective progress in the attached annual report. You will clearly see why your support and interest in the program is making a difference in our quest to win championships, develop and graduate student-athletes, and provide a memorable student-athlete experience. We are most appreciative of your continued loyal support of UC Athletics.
