Intercollegiate Athletics at the Community College
Williams, Mitchell R.; Byrd, Laura; Pennington, Kevin
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n4-6 p453-461 Apr 2008
Each year, many community college leaders find themselves, either methodically or haphazardly, making decisions about intercollegiate athletics. There have, however, been few empirical studies on how and why community colleges initiate, expand, or terminate athletic programs. Two studies investigating leaders' perceptions of intercollegiate athletics provide data which may be helpful to community college officials considering the pros and cons of athletic programs. Recommendations are provided regarding the need for statewide guidelines on community college athletics and the importance of a campus-based Council on Athletics. (Contains 1 table.)
