During Trustee Caudill's time at the University of Nevada, the football program's academic profile has improved from one of the worst programs to one of the best in the nation. The Wolf Pack football program has surpassed the 3.0 team GPA mark twice during Caudill's tenure (Spring 2015 and Fall 2016). At the conclusion of classes during the summer of 2017, the Nevada football program joined Northwestern and Boise State as the only Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) programs to ever achieve a 3.0 cumulative team GPA. Nevada achieved a 3.008 for 5,667 credit hours. In May of 2018, the NCAA recognized the Nevada football program for achieving an Academic Progress Rate (APR) in the top 10% of all FBS programs joining Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Northwestern, Stanford, Air Force, Navy, Illinois, Michigan, Washington, Wisconsin, and Vanderbilt. Nevada finished 8th that year nationally. Most recently, Nevada football was awarded the American Football Coaches Association Academic Achievement Award for 2018 along with Pittsburgh, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and national champion Clemson. When Caudill arrived at Nevada, the program was coming off of a year that produced an overall APR score that ranked third to last in the nation.
He is very active in his North Valleys community and serves on the Neighborhood Advisory Board for Ward 4 in Reno. He also serves on the Academic Standards Committee at the university, which is tasked with protecting academic integrity, as well as the Mountain West Conference Academic Director's Committee.To learn more about Trustee Caudill, click here.Contact Andrew Caudill by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
