Colgate student-athletes improved by one position to third nationally in the latest NCAA Division I Graduation Success Rate release.
The Raiders for the fourth straight year are at 98 percent, placing Colgate alongside peer schools Columbia, Davidson, Duke, Harvard, Holy Cross, Loyola-Chicago, Notre Dame, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the great work done by our student-athletes and first-class faculty to achieve this incredible ranking,” said Colgate Vice President and Director of Athletics Victoria M. Chun ’91, MA’94. “We strive to obtain excellence in all that we do, and this is a clear example of that. Our student-athletes are proof that you can compete at the highest level of athletics while excelling in the classroom at a world-class institution.”
Colgate recorded perfect 100-percent graduation success rates from 23 of its 24 NCAA-sponsored teams, or three more than a year ago.
The NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate includes transfer students and student-athletes who leave in good academic standing. The GSR measures graduation over six years from first-time college enrollment.
