About the Department
With more than 140 years of tradition, Gopher Athletics is one of the oldest and most decorated athletics department's in the country.

There are more than 700 student-athletes and nearly 300 full-time employees in our athletics department. That community has built Minnesota into the nation's top-ranked public school with respect to student-athlete academic performance in each of the past four years, a span of time during which the Gophers have won 13 conference team titles and a collection of individual conference and national crowns.
