Understanding the Lack of Female Leadership in Collegiate Athletics
Camarco, Lisa
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northcentral University
This study sought an understanding of the current trends in the lack of females in leadership positions within collegiate athletic departments amongst California Community Colleges. The passage of Title IX created a new funding stream for women's athletics, resulting in male coaches and administrators entering into the female realm, therefore decreasing job opportunities for women. This in effect has created a problem of marginalization of women amongst collegiate athletic positions in leadership. A qualitative case study utilizing interviews of administrators, coaches, and student-athletes from the California Community College Athletic Association was utilized to understand the cultural phenomenon. Emerging details of women within these leadership roles will aide in creating a more thorough understanding of women within these positions of leadership which can lead to future increases in opportunities and a higher rate of retention amongst females.
