Academics for athletes: Iowa universities invest in supporting students

The term is student-athlete.

And administrators across this country’s college and university campuses say there’s a reason the word “student” comes first.

“Our AD Gary Barta always talks about, ‘Win. Graduate. Do it right,’ ” Liz Tovar, University of Iowa associate athletics director for student-athlete academic services, said about Hawkeye Athletics Director Barta’s oft-repeated mantra. “And I think, from a fundamental standpoint, that’s very important. It’s not just important that we say that. It’s important that we follow through with that.”

Part of that follow-through, according to Tovar, involves providing adequate and accessible space for student-athletes to study, collaborate on coursework, receive tutoring, meet with career and academic counselors, and refuel along the way following grueling practice and performance schedules.

Thus the university in 2003 debuted a $4.6 million Gerdin Athletic Learning Center on the west side of campus — near its athletics facilities — equipped with a library, tutorial spaces, computer labs and “refueling stations.” The goal at the time was to “fully integrate the athletic and academic development” of its 600-plus student-athletes.
