set GPA standard
UT Martin student-athletes earned a record-best 3.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) for the spring 2012 semester. The 3.0 GPA was above the all campus average of 2.71.
“This achievement is a team effort,” UT Martin Athletics Director Phil Dane said. “Our coaches are recruiting good students. Our faculty and academic support staff are cooperative with our students to help them meet course objectives around difficult practice and competition schedules.”
“We might have had a 2.90 or something like that, but never a 3.0 GPA,” retired Army Col. William Kaler said.
Kaler has served as UT Martin’s director of compliance since 1980.
More than 130 student-athletes made the spring semester Dean’s List and 177 of the 287 student-athletes made a 3.0 GPA or higher. Kaler said 41 student-athletes made a perfect 4.0 GPA.
