    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The NCAA announced on Wednesday, May 12, that the Indiana University men's golf and women's soccer programs are being honored for their outstanding Academic Performance Program's multi-year APR score. High-performing teams receiving awards posted APR scored ranging from 975 to a perfect 1,000.

    "There is no more important objective for IU Athletics than graduating our student-athletes," said Fred Glass, Indiana Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. "Coaches Mike Mayer and Mick Lyon and our academics staff have worked diligently to make sure our student-athletes earn their degrees from Indiana University. We are thrilled that the NCAA has recognized their remarkable efforts".

    Each year the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear APR. This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams who demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports. Specifically, these teams posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport.

    The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance. Multiyear APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be announced at a later date.
