Truman Athletes Earn Presidents’ Excellence Honor From NCAA


Truman Athletics was once again recognized by the NCAA with the Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence for Division II schools that have achieved an Academic Success Rate of 90% or higher.

Truman was one of five members of the Great Lakes Valley Conference to earn the award and one of only four public institutions among the 44 honored schools. As a conference, the GLVC finished third with five athletics programs achieving scores of 90%.

The Division II ASR includes transfers into a school in the calculation and removes those who transferred out while academically eligible. The ASR also includes the more than 30,000 nonscholarship student-athletes who were enrolled in the four years covered in the most recent data.

The ASR for Truman student-athletes is 91%. For Division II athletes, the federal rate is 60%, and the general student body is 52%.
