The Changing Nature of Division III Athletics
Beaver, William
College and University, v89 n3 p34-40 2014
Non-selective Division III institutions often face challenges in meeting their enrollment goals. To ensure their continued viability, these schools recruit large numbers of student athletes. As a result, when compared to FBS (Football Bowl Division) institutions these schools have a much higher percentage of student athletes on campus and a slightly higher number of varsity teams despite having much smaller enrollments.
