University of Portland athletics posted a 93 percent student-athlete Graduation Success Rate (GSR), according to the latest data released by the NCAA. The GSR measures graduation rates for the most recent six-year graduating class of incoming student-athletes who enrolled between 2010-2013, and marks the ninth consecutive year that Portland posted a GSR above 90 percent as a department.
Portland’s men’s cross country and track and field, men’s soccer, and women’s cross country and track and field teams and women’s tennis each posted perfect scores during the most recent cohort. Eight of the 11 Pilot teams represented in the data posted a score of 90 percent or better.
The Division I Board of Directors launched the GSR in 1998 in response to college and university presidents who wanted data that more accurately reflected the mobility of college students than the federal graduation rate.For more information contact athletics at x7117 or go to portlandpilots.com.
