An Investigation of the Implementation of Academic Planning Meetings for Student Athletes
MetadataShow full item record
Do collegiate athletics impact student-athlete's academic achievement compared to non-student-athletes and how does it affect their time management? The studied institution was a private liberal arts institution located in southeast Wisconsin that compared two groups, varsity student-athletes who participated on the 2012-2013 men's volleyball team in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)- Division-III and non-student-athletes who did not participate in NCAA- Division III. This institution required all first year students to attend a college success seminar course to aide in their time management skills. The researcher expanded the course, offered it to the men's volleyball team, and the researcher implemented weekly academic meetings to investigate the relationship between student athletes and non-student athlete's perception of the effectiveness of the college success seminars on various issues associated with student success in college. Grade point averages were analyzed between the two groups of undergraduate students. The structured schedule of the academic planning program assisted student athletes to become more assertive and responsible for their own efforts. The student athletes monitored their own academic progress, which appeared to increase and enhance their self-discipline during their daily activities associated to a prior studied academic success model.
