Applying concepts, data, and other information from various sources in the literature when and where appropriate, the book reveals and examines the behavior, contribution, and impact of student athletes (SAs) on campuses of American colleges and universities. It highlights, in part, SAs' progress academically while they devoted time and resources to participate in one or more of their schools' individual and/or team sports in Division I, II, and/or III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, or in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and/or National Junior College Athletic Association.
