Student-​​athletes at North­eastern are excelling on and off the field, said Ath­letics Director Peter Roby, who deliv­ered his annual report to the Fac­ulty Senate yesterday.

Roby said the average ath­lete at North­eastern has a GPA of 3.086, with 192 on the Dean’s List and 51 of those “Top Dogs” — stu­dents with GPAs above 3.8.

They have a lot of demands on their time, but they con­tinue to make us proud and com­pete in the class­room,” Roby said.

He said the fac­ulty share respon­si­bility in the suc­cess of student-​​athletes, who may occa­sion­ally miss class time while trav­eling to out-​​of-​​town competitions.

Your flex­i­bility and con­sid­er­a­tion of them is some­thing we really appre­ciate,” Roby said, “and we hope this shows that we are really serious in the class­room and that we appre­ciate all that you do.”

Four of Northeastern’s teams — men’s indoor track, men’s out­door track, women’s ice hockey and women’s rowing — posted per­fect scores of 1,000 in the NCAA’s most recent multi-​​year Aca­d­emic Progress Rate, placing them in the top 10 per­cent of the 6,422 col­lege teams in the United States. The 17 North­eastern var­sity teams sub­ject to APR posted an average score of 988, a rate above the national average of 970.

Roby also touted the “Husky Wish Gift” pro­gram, an athlete-​​run ini­tia­tive that ben­e­fits orga­ni­za­tions like the Hunt­ington Avenue YMCA and 12 public schools in Boston, with the student-​​athletes pro­viding tutoring and phys­ical activ­i­ties for Boston youth. The ini­tia­tive, which pro­motes healthy living, is funded through money raised by the student-​​athletes and a share of the money the NCAA pro­vides to each team.

It’s a great way for them to see what phil­an­thropy looks like and I think they’ll keep that value after they leave col­lege,” Roby said.

Roby also show­cased recent upgrades to audio-​​visual equip­ment, including HD video capa­bil­i­ties at Matthews Arena, Solomon Court and Bar­letta Nata­to­rium. The state-​​of-​​the-​​art media ini­tia­tive also employs some 75 stu­dents, who operate cam­eras, edit videos and pro­vide play-​​by-​​play com­men­tary during live games.

The ESPNs of the world are all looking for con­tent from schools like us to put on places like ESPN3 and YouTube Sports,” Roby said, “and they’re saying that the quality of what we’re pro­ducing is good enough to put on TV.”

Northeastern’s ath­letics pro­grams also have a new fan base: Char­lotte, N.C., where the uni­ver­sity opened its first regional campus this week.

I know there are a lot of people in Char­lotte who said that they are already looking for­ward to the Beanpot,” said Provost Stephen Director.
