Division I Student Athletes' Perceptions: How Well Does the Athletic Department Promote Student Athlete Development in an Urban-Serving University?
Metropolitan Universities, v25 n1 p79-95 2014
The purpose of the research was to identify student athletes' perceptions of their athletic department regarding student development. Student athletes from a Division I athletic department were surveyed (n = 369) in order to monitor their development. Regression analyses, which included respondent's sport, gender, classification, reports of abuse, and student development programs, explained only 25 percent of the variance of student athletes' perceptions. Other factors explain student athletes' perceptions of developmental programs. Recommendations are provided.
