UMR’s athletics program ranks 13th among NCAA Division II institutions in the 2007 National Collegiate Scouting Association rankings.

The NCSA rankings rate colleges and universites based on their student-athlete graduation rates, academic strength and athletic success. More than 260 institutions compete at the NCAA Division II level.

The rankings are calculated for each college and university at the NCAA Division I, II and III levels by averaging the U.S. News & World Report ranking, the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup ranking and the NCAA student-athlete graduation rate of each college and university.

The collegiate power rankings, based off of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup rating, evaluates the strength of NCAA athletic departments, while the U.S. News & World Report rating recognizes institutions of academic excellence. The student-athlete graduation rates are based on those provided by the NCAA.

The top-ranked school in this year’s rankings is the University of California-San Diego, which was the top-ranked Division II school in the U.S. News rankings and tied for the top spot with several schools for its graduation rate.

UMR was the second-highest ranked school among the Great Lakes Valley Conference schools behind Drury University; nine other GLVC schools were ranked among the top 100. The others were Wisconsin-Parkside (18th), Indianapolis (tied for 26th), Lewis (28th), Bellarmine (50th), Quincy (55th), Southern Illinois-Edwardsville (65th), Rockhurst (80th), Northern Kentucky (84th) and Missouri-St. Louis (85th).

In addition to the collegiate power rankings, NCSA is also providing recruiting education to high school athletic directors, coaches and families of student-athletes who are interested in competing at the next level.
