by Josh Dubow
Daily Sports Editor
Last week, NCAA institutions re-
leased their respective graduation rates.
In response to prodding from Congress,
the NCAA voted twoyears ago tornake
these rates public.
Michigan Athletic Director Jack
Weidenbach was pleased with his
school's results. Over the two-year pe-
riodofentering studentsin 1983-84and
1984-85, Michigan graduated 66 per-
cent of its athletes within six years as
opposed to the general student body
which graduated at an 81 percent rate.
However, when therefinedgradua-
tion rate is taken into account - the
refined rate includes transfer athletes
whoentered, andbyexcluding student-
athletes whodidnotgraduate within six
years but were either in good academic
standing when they left the institution,
or were still in school at the beginning
of the seventh year - Michigan had a
rate of 83 prcent.
Michigan ranked fifth in the Big

third in the refined rate. Illinois gradu-
'The main idea is to give

the kids organized and work
with problem solving and

"I think when you look at the re-

Weidenbach said. "When you look at
Michigan, you have to earn your de-
gree. But like anything else, we'd like
to do better.
"Our strength here is our Academic
Support Program," Weidenbach said.
"It monitors the progress of the student-
athlete and bridges the gap to help kids
who come from lesser academic back-
grounds."

I needed it," junior swinmer Kathy
