Rensselaer Places 36th in NCSA Study of Academics and Athletics

National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) Athletic Recruiting has announced that Rensselaer is ranked 36th among NCAA Division III universities, and 61st overall in the eighth annual NCSA Collegiate Power Rankings.

NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s Collegiate 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 6 percent of colleges and universities earn a spot in NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s Top 100 for 2010, and Rensselaer is in this elite class.

Chris Krause, CEO and founder of NCSA Athletic Recruiting, says, “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. 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.”

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 ranking.

A comprehensive list of the rankings, both overall and by division, is available at www.ncsasports.org/about-ncsa/power-rankings.
