Understanding college student-athlete culture and identity by using a framework of social identity theory: A case study

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

College student-athletes in the United States have been subjects of studies and research for many decades. Though collegiate athletics may bring revenue into institutions of higher education, administrators have had difficulty addressing the issues that are common and more prevalent among student-athletes. The purpose of this research is to utilize college student-athlete identity to provide a locus of origin for negative behaviors (Wechsler, et al., 2002). Set within a framework of Social Identity Theory and utilizing the Athletic Identification Measurement Scale (AIMS) (Brewer, et al., 1993) this study will place student-athletes in two different types of identifying categories: Athlete Identity (AI) and Non-Athlete Identity (NAI). These identifying categories will provide the baseline for independent variables such as policy adherence and perceptions of coaching staffs’ attitudes. In addition, secondary dependent variables (e.g. race, gender, socio-economic status) will be utilized in order to determine the predictive nature of those demographics with the likelihood of certain identities.
