STU is one of 171 institutions that were recognized by the NAIA as Five-Star Award winners. The Bobcats were among 80 institutions earning the bonze award.
Institutions were measured on a demonstrated commitment to “Champions of Character” and earned points in character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion. Institutions earned points based on exceptional student-athlete grade point averages and by having minimal to no ejections during competition throughout the course of the academic year.
STU’s athletic programs make a conscious effort to demonstrate the COC’s five core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership, and sportsmanship.
