Rockhurst ranks 26th in NCSA Collegiate Power RankingsOctober 3, 2011
Rockhurst University is ranked 26th among NCAA Division II universities in the Ninth Annual NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s Collegiate Power Rankings, which assess the academic and athletics standards of all NCAA athletic programs across the country.
“The Power Rankings are an objective tool to empower student athletes to find the right fit in a college or university, not only for its athletics, but academics as well,” said Chris Krause, CEO and founder of NCSA Athletic Recruiting. “Our hope is to educate these student athletes and their parents on the importance of evaluating schools that will provide the education for an enriched, successful career after college, in addition to athletic success.”
The Collegiate Power Rankings are calculated for each Division I, II and III college and university by averaging student-athlete graduation rates, academic rankings provided by U.S. News & World Report, and the strength of athletic departments as determined by the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup.
