Synthesizing Research on the Contemporary Student-Athlete Experience: Implications and Recommendations for NCAA Student-Athlete Development Programming
Navarro, Kristina; Malvaso, Stephen
Journal of College and Character, v16 n4 p263-269 2015
In the last 20 years, a unique but limited body of literature has surfaced focusing specifically on how student affairs professionals can assist student-athletes with critical transitional periods, specifically preparation for career fields. Considering Astin and Kuh's theoretical discussion on student engagement, this article discusses the need to consider a more holistic model across NCAA divisions to guide campus-level student-athlete development programs. The authors synthesize findings from the literature on the unique elements of the student-athlete experience, which provide recommendations for NCAA student-athlete development policy. Finally, the authors provide implications for how campus-level student affairs practitioners who work with student-athletes can work to enhance campus and civic engagement, as well as prepare these individuals for life after college.
