The Long-Term Benefits of Cross-Racial Engagement on Workforce Competencies for Division I White Student-Athletes
Comeaux, Eddie
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v50 n1 p37-55 Feb 2013
This study explored the extent to which cross-racial interaction (CRI) influences postcollege pluralistic orientation and leadership skills for Division I White student-athlete graduates and the degree to which engagement effects are conditional on their precollege neighborhoods. Findings revealed that CRI during college had lasting benefits on pluralistic orientation and leadership skills after college for White student-athletes from racially diverse neighborhoods; further, CRI had long-term effects on leadership skills after college for White student-athletes from segregated precollege neighborhoods. Implications for student affairs professionals are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
