Social Work With African American Males

Oxford University Press

Drawing from a larger project that explores racial differences in student athletes' academic integration patterns on campus, this chapter ascertains the effect of specific forms of student athlete-faculty interaction on academic achievement. Specifically, it examines selected faculty interaction measures of academic achievement as well as high school grades (grade point average [GPA]), family income and education, the type of institution (public or private), among others. The chapter focuses on Black student athletes in the revenue-producing sports of men's basketball and football.

Keywords:   African American males, student athletes, academic achievement, student athlete-faculty interaction
