The Bratzke Student-Athlete Academic Success Center provides an academic support program and a multifaceted academic resource for all student-athletes competing on NCAA varsity teams on EKU’s campus. The Center provides opportunities and services to enhance the student-athlete’s academic performance, as well as monitoring progress to ensure all student-athletes meet their academic eligibility requirements as determined by the NCAA, OVC, and EKU.
Bratzke Center programs include academic advising, academic monitoring, mentoring, supervised study hall, tutoring, and personal counseling, as well as referrals to other academic support programs on campus. Each student athlete’s academic progress is monitored closely each semester to facilitate graduating with the highest grade point average possible, while maintaining NCAA eligibility throughout their collegiate athletic career.
The Bratzke Center also sponsors a Life Skills program designed to promote student-athlete growth in five commitment areas: academics, athletics, personal development, service, and career development. Throughout the year the Center plans and coordinates outreach activities for student-athletes in support of the local community and Eastern Kentucky.
