As part of an annual report about undergraduate admissions discussed with the Faculty Athletics Committee of the Faculty Council on October 13, 2015, Stephen Farmer, Vice Provost for Enrollment and Undergraduate Admissions, presented information about student-athletes who enrolled in the University in 2015. This information is summarized in this annual report on athletics admissions.
The new report covers the 2015 first-year class of student-athletes. The report was first developed in 2014 at the request of the Faculty Council’s Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Admissions, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the Department of Athletics. The aim is to foster transparency; protect the privacy of individual students; provide context for campus and national conversations about the academic preparation and success of student-athletes; enable assessment of admissions and other academic processes; disaggregate information meaningfully and fairly; encourage ongoing improvement; and provide leadership.
The key sections included in this report:
- Introduction explaining the rationale for the report, including a description of how prospective student-athletes are evaluated for admission;
- Facts about enrolling first-year student-athletes in the class entering in 2015 and additional context and comparisons with previous years at UNC-Chapel Hill, as well as other UNC, North Carolina and national peer campuses;
- A ‘question & answer’ section regarding the data and the admissions process for student-athletes;
- Definitions of key terms used in the report.
