Rockhurst ranks 11th in NCSA Collegiate Power RankingsOctober 3, 2012

Rockhurst University is ranked 11th among NCAA Division II universities, and 60th overall, in the 10th Annual NCSA Collegiate Power Rankings, announced NCSA Athletic Recruiting.

NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s Collegiate 2012 Power Rankings assess the academic and athletics standards of all NCAA athletic programs across the country. The Power Rankings were developed to help prospective student-athletes and their families evaluate the particular strengths of the top colleges and universities at the Division I, II and III levels. Fewer than six percent of colleges and
universities earn a spot in NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s Top 100 for 2012.

"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," says Lisa Strasman, COO and President 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 from NCSA Athletic Recruiting 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.

These Power Rankings are only one example of NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s commitment to redefining collegiate recruiting. As the leading athletic recruiting network, NCSA connects more than 42,000 college coaches with student-athletes who hope to pursue both higher education and the chance to compete in athletics at the college level.
