NCAA President announces new graduation standard

Jeff Rickel/ Reporter

Elon, N.C. — Dr. Myles Brand, president of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, announced today the NCAA’s aspiration to increase student athletes’ Graduation Success Rate to 80 percent.

After transfer students were counted, 76 percent of Division 1 student athletes graduated last year, a 24-point increase from the 1990 total. And African Americans GSR rose 17 percent from 1990. Brand hopes that in six to seven years universities will achieve this new goal, but knows it won’t be easy.
