University’s commitment to female head coaches earns Quinnipiac highest grade
The Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport released its annual Women in College Coaching Report Card (WCCRC) in collaboration with WeCOACH.
Among 352 total institutions, Quinnipiac was one of just 18 schools to earn an "A" grade on the report, which signifies that at least 70% of the head coaches of our women's teams are females.
The university will offer live undergraduate sessions and a live tour of our campuses for prospective students and their families — October 4, October 25 and November 8. The schools of Business, Communications, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, Nursing and the College of Arts and Sciences will also offer a combined 18 discovery sessions so students can learn more about their designated areas of interest.
