CU receives Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence
CEDARVILLE, Ohio – Cedarville University has again received the Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence.
The university is one of 43 NCAA Division II member schools to receive the prestigious award for the ninth, eighth consecutive year.
“The President’s Award recognizes what an outstanding group of student-athletes we have and the great faculties that challenge, support and teach each of our student-athletes,” said Interim Athletic Director Christopher Cross.
“God has given Cedarville University Athletics the responsibility of developing young minds who think deeply to make a difference in the world for Christ in both the sports arena and their chosen courses.”
The award recognizes institutions for achieving four-year Academic Success Rates (ASR) of 90 percent or more. Cedarville ranked 15th out of more than 300 member schools in the state with an ASR of 93 percent.
The ASR is the percentage of student athletes who graduate within six years of initial college enrollment and consists of virtually all Division II student athletes.
Two other Great Midwest Athletic Conference institutions received the award – Hillsdale College (98%) and Trevecca Nazarene University (93%). A total of nine schools in the Midwest region are on the list.
The Federal Graduation Rate (FGR) calculates the percentage of undergraduate athletes who graduated in the seven-year window from the 2014-15 academic year through 2020-21. Cedarville’s FGR for student athletes is 79 percent, while the total student body is 73 percent.
