Author
  • Donald Reed (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Today's student-athletes are faced with many challenges. These challenges range from maintaining a productive balance between athletics and academic commitments to coping with the high visibility attached to being a student-athlete. For minority student-athletes, the high visibility can be magnified, thus creating a myriad of unique challenges.

This panel discussion will address the challenges the minority student-athletes face at a predominately white institution. Various aspects of campus and community life will be discussed.

The panelists will discuss aspects of racial discrimination and unfair treatment in the classroom, on campus, and in the community.
