Alverno Student-Athletes Honored As NACC Scholar-Athletes

MILWAUKEE -- Alverno College student-athletes stood out in the classroom as 45 Inferno were named Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Scholar-Athletes for the 2016-17 academic year.

Student-athletes that compete in the conference must maintain a grade point average of 3.25 or higher for the current academic year to be eligible for the honor -- though Alverno does not administer traditional grades. Instead, teaching and learning at Alverno are enhanced by assessment of a student's individual progress and by giving meaningful feedback.

The department of athletics has worked out a process with the faculty to review the records of the student-athletes' performances and determine if the year's academic work would be comparable to a student from a school with a GPA of 3.25 or greater.

This partnership allows the Inferno student-athletes who work hard both in the classroom and on the court or field to be recognized and honored by the NACC, as the other member institutions' student-athletes are.
