25/85 CLUB
As a rallying point on the road to preeminence, Purdue Athletics administrators coined the term "25/75 Club" to articulate a vision of an intercollegiate athletics organization that achieves an average finish in the top 25 across all sports and graduates 75 percent of its student-athletes.

To better reflect graduation success, the "25/75" was altered to "25/85" - using as its metric the Graduation Success Rate (which better accounts for transfer activity) - when the athletics department strategic plan for 2008 to 2014 was unveiled.

In the 2016-17, Purdue accumulated 548.25 points in the Directors' Cup to rank 41st out of 351 schools, the 88th percentile. Both the point total and placing were the best by the Boilermakers since 2008-09.The Graduation Success Rate presently stands at 84 percent.

In 1993-94, Purdue ranked 81st in the Directors' Cup and had a 59 percent graduation rate.
