Wildcats Are Breaking Records

We are used to our athletic teams excelling in their sports, but they are pretty smart too. In the annual report released by the NCAA, UK has posted a school record for graduation rates.

“The academic success of our student-athletes – especially their progress toward graduation – is a core part of our mission as an athletics department,” Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said. “I am proud of how seriously our student-athletes take the opportunity they have to pursue a world-class education at UK and thankful for the support our coaches, staff, and CATS counselors and tutors provide in that pursuit. Education is so important to success in life after college, which is our goal for every student-athlete.”
