U SPORTS, the national governing body of university sports in Canada, gives special recognition to student-athletes across the country with an academic standing of 80 per cent or better. UPEI is proud to announce 76 of its 184 student athletes in the 2017–2018 season have been named U SPORTS Academic All-Canadians. That’s more than 41 per cent of the student-athlete population, and one of the top rates of Academic All-Canadians at universities in the country.

UPEI student-athletes strive for excellence in sport, academics, and in the greater community. This level of academic achievement speaks volumes about their work ethic and the quality of our coaches, faculty, staff, and varsity programs.

UPEI Athletics and Recreation will celebrate its Academic All-Canadians at a ceremony Saturday morning at 10:00 am in McMillan Hall at UPEI’s W.A. Murphy Student Centre.

Congratulations to our Academic All-Canadians! Go Panthers Go!
