The authors explore a full range of important issues, including the ongoing impact of Title IX, the integration of student athletes into on-campus residence halls, the college experience for minority athletes, and the expansion of opportunities for women athletes. They present current research in psychosocial and cognitive developmental theories and provide models of successful enrollment and student services programs for assisting student athletes during their college career and beyond. The authors also review the evolution of college sports, including the relevant terms and definitions of this field, and examine the personal and environmental factors that shape a student athlete's college experience.
