Continuous Improvement: We are always learning and seeking a ‘better way.’ FOR ALL FANS OF MOCS ATHLETICS AND MOCS CLUB MEMBERS The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Department considers total compliance with NCAA and Southern Conference rules to be one of the highest priorities of our institution. We sincerely appreciate your support of Mocs Athletics and are committed to educating our fans and boosters about the rules that regulate your relationships with our student-athletes as even the best-intentioned action on your part may be a violation of NCAA rules.

ACADEMICALLY • Over last 10 semesters, the studentathlete grade point average has risen from 2.51 (Spring 2007) to 2.97. • 57 student-athletes earned degrees in 2011-12. • 59 student-athletes named to the fall, winter and spring Academic All-Southern Conference Teams. ATHLETICALLY • Three teams won SoCon titles in 2011-12, wrestling, men’s golf and women’s golf. Seven teams - women’s basketball (WNIT), men’s and women’s cross country, wrestling, men’s and women’s golf and softball competed in postseason play. • Individually, the Mocs had three AllAmericans, two SoCon Athletes of the Year, seven SoCon Champions, three SoCon Freshmen of the Year and one SoCon Coach of the Year. Chattanooga also brought home 36 All-SoCon honors, while 18 student-athletes made various SoCon All-Freshmen teams. SOCIALLY • The Mocs volunteered at numerous community events throughout the year, including National Volunteer Week, Special Olympics, Read Across America and many more. • The Mocs looked to expand their presence in the surrounding areas with Caravan trips to Atlanta and Nashville. Not to forget their closest fans, the student-athletes again took part in Operation Move-In, helping freshmen unload into their dorms to begin the fall semester. • Being engaged in the community can extend past volunteering. The Mocs created a stir with a number of creative marketing ideas, including the Go Blue Be Gold football game against Jacksonville State , the Black Out men’s basketball game against Furman, Phillip D. Glass donning a football helmet for the second year in a row and having the No. 2 rated football media guide in the nation.
