The AVCA Team Academic Award honors volleyball teams at the high school and college level that are successful in the classroom. Nominees include high school or college teams that have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.30 (on a 4.00 scale) or 4.10 (on a 5.00 scale) during the full academic year (both semesters or all quarters), and include all varsity athletes who competed in volleyball with the institution for any portion of the academic year.

DePauw posted a 25-14 overall record this year including an 11-4 mark in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play and finished second at the SCAC Championship.

The Tigers previously earned the AVCA distinction following the 2006-07 academic year.
