Intercollegiate Athletics


Comprising some 17 different sports, Hurricane Athletics fosters outstanding student-athletes who excel on the field of competition while making the grade in academic achievements.

The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is dedicated to developing and supporting the University’s 400+ student-athletes in their efforts to achieve personal, academic, and athletic excellence. UM student athletes have won 21 team National Championships, 71 individual National Championships, and earned 400-plus All-America honors. In the academic arena, the Hurricanes continue to raise their profile by outperforming the NCAA averages in pursuit towards degree and achievement. The department-wide Graduation Success Rate (GSR) was a record 89 percent in 2011 and has steadily improved over the past seven years.

In order to fund a nationally competitive program and provide our student-athletes with the resources they need to achieve excellence, Hurricane Athletics must aggressively grow its support base and further develop infrastructure through private giving. Momentum2 is critical to providing student-athletes with the necessary resources to reestablish the University’s athletic excellence and build upon the academic growth of the last decade.
