Abstract

Today’s student-athletes are faced with a myriad of unique challenges. These may range from maintaining a productive balance between athletic and academic commitments to coping with the high visibility attached to being a student-athlete. This panel discussion will address the challenges minority student-athletes face at a predominantly white institution and aspects of campus and community life for these students. Critique of racial discrimination and unfair treatment in the classroom, on campus, and in the community will be included.
