Snyder, Peter L.
Journal of Black Studies, v26 n6 p651-67 Jul 1996
Assesses differences in academic and athletic motivation levels among white and black student-athletes, and probes two possible causal variables for graduation rates by examining postgraduate expectations of student-athletes and aspects of their social, cultural, and personal orientations. Survey responses from 327 college athletes reveal pronounced differences in academic and athletic motivation between ethnic groups and levels of athletic competition. (GR)
