Texas bested the NCAA standard in all 20 intercollegiate sports programs, with seven of those programs — baseball, men's basketball, men's tennis, women's tennis, women's indoor track and field, women's outdoor track and field and volleyball — earning public recognition awards.
"The APR is the best measurement for tracking how our student-athletes are doing academically, and we're very proud that the data once again shows the consistent success of our entire department," UT Men's Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds said. "We are about winning championships on the field of play, but we also have a responsibility to develop the complete person in each of our student-athletes."
UT Women's Athletics Director Chris Plonsky added: "Our coaches and staff work extremely hard to identify student-athletes who are committed to high academic performance as well as competitive excellence."
"We're proud of our team APR success for the 500 student-athletes who represent The University of Texas in intercollegiate athletics," Plonsky said.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete during the school year. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance. This APR is based on data submitted by the institution for the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years.
