Big Time Athletic Villages--Gated Communities Emerging on Campus
Weaver, Karen; Tegtmeyer, Jordan
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v50 n1 p54-62 2018
Top football programs around the country are leading a trend of building exclusive player-only villages to enhance the togetherness of the team. Although coaches love this idea, little thought has been given to the larger student development and isolation issues this trend creates for students on a team. Further segregating them from the rest of the campus population creates significant social and personal drawbacks that senior administrators need to consider before signing off on this concept. This article presents the advantages and areas of concern regarding athletic villages that should be considered for those interested in student development.
