Kansas Athletics’ No. 1 goal with student-athletes is to represent the University of Kansas on the field of play in an exemplary manner. It goes without saying that we expect the same in the classroom and in their personal lives to the best of their ability. We are also proud of our student-athletes’ academic achievements this past year. Jayhawk student-athletes tied the KU Graduation Success Rate (GSR) record (85 percent) for the second time in the last three years. Five Kansas teams achieved perfect one-year scores, and two teams posted perfect four-year scores, in the latest NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) data. Kansas’ Student-Athlete Support Services staff and KU LEADS staff are focused on supporting the academic, personal and interpersonal development of each Jayhawk student-athlete. Kansas’ academic complex features individual study rooms, a computer lab and offices for all Student-Athlete Support Services personnel. Individualized and small study group tutoring, based entirely upon the learning needs of each student-athlete, is available to any Jayhawk who needs academic assistance. Furthermore, KU LEADS initiatives include a Freshman Leadership Academy, Emergent Leader Retreats, Career Development, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Community Service and Jayhawks After College to further support the academic and personal development of each Kansas Jayhawk.
