The NCAA recently honored Division I athletics teams with Public Recognition Awards based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR). Dartmouth lead the way with 23 such teams, the most honored at any one institution.

According to the NCAA, Division I teams calculate APRs each academic year, with ratings based on the eligibility and retention of student-athletes.

While this was the first year the Big Green had the most teams honored, Dartmouth has been ranked among the top three programs in the country in each of the seven years since the award program was established.
