Are the NCAA’s APR scores fair?

Monique Ositelu was a standout performer in track and cross country at Furman, and was a member of the league's Academic Honor Roll.

Monique Ositelu, a 2011 Furman graduate and senior policy analyst with the Education Policy program at New America, has written an opinion piece for “Diverse: Issues in Higher Education” about the NCAA and its Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores. In the piece, she writes that the “NCAA needs to retire the APR metric and instead use accountability tools that level the playing field between rich and low-resourced colleges and universities.”

Ositelu was a standout performer in track and cross country at Furman, earning All-Southern Conference honors and being named to the league’s Academic Honor Roll. After graduating from Furman with a degree in psychology, she earned a master’s in public administration from the University of Texas at El Paso and a Ph.D. in higher education Florida State University.
