2010-11 YEAR IN REVIEW

ACADEMICS

THE VALUE OF A QUALITY EDUCATION A strategic focus on academics has resulted in doubling the size of the Student Support Services over the last five years. As a result, the academic performance of the Mocs’ studentathletes has grown tremendously. Dr. Emily Blackman, Assistant Athletics Director for Student Support Services, has a dual reporting role to the Director of Athletics and Academic Affairs. This relationship has helped to strengthen the ties between athletics and the main campus and has been very beneficial to all of our student-athletes. Through fund raising and a strategic allocation of funds, more and more Mocs are able to attend summer school, continue to receive support after their eligibility expires and receive top-quality academic support during their academic careers.

The 2008 women’s cross country team personified comprehensive excellence, winning the SoCon title and posting the highest team g.p.a. in the NATION with a 3.55 cumulative mark.

THE PUSH TO

3.0

The Mocs began to officially track the overall grade-point-average of its student-athletes in the 2007 spring semester. As the chart to the left shows, UTC has increased its g.p.a. in each of the last six semesters. We are closing in on our goal of a 3.0 g.p.a. across the board. At the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Athletics Director’s Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes with a 3.0 semester g.p.a. Over half of the Mocs have earned this distinction in each of the last four semesters. In addition, over 40% of all student-athletes at UTC made the Dean’s List with a 3.2 g.p.a. in each of the last two semesters.
