  • New Deal Spending and Stadia: Constructions Utilized by National
           Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Institutions

    • Authors: Chad Seifried, Tiffany Demiris
      Pages: 1 - 26
      Abstract: The present study seeks to understand more about the contribution the United States’ New Deal Depression-era programs had on college sport stadia. To complete this research, we examined projects used by the schools and communities connected to the National College Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Division I and provide answers to the following research questions: 1) What New Deal programs (i.e., 1933-1942) are connected to college football stadia construction; 2) What regions took advantage of these programs to support the development of their football product; and 3) How can any differences found between regions and New Deal programs be explained' Within the present work, we differentiate the various NEW Deal programs from one another. Next, we make a case for why sport stadia attracted New Deal monies. The results of our study show a substantial commitment to sport stadia, present an explanation on regional differences, and offer a rationale on why there were differences in funding commitments by the various New Deal programs along with the types of innovations incorporated into the new structures or renovations.

  • Navigating the Intersection of COVID-19 and (Re)new(ed) Calls for Racial
           Justice: A Qualitative Examination of the Experiences of Diversity,
           Equity, and Inclusion Professionals in College Athletics During A Year of
           “Social Justice Awakening”

    • Authors: Nicholas Swim, Robert Turick, Yannick Kluch, Raquel Wright-Mair
      Pages: 27 - 53
      Abstract: The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the experiences of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) professionals in the NCAA athletics governance structure. The specific focus was centered on the multiple crises of summer 2020, including both the COVID-19 pandemic and calls for social injustices and its effects on DEI work and the impacts on DEI professionals within college athletics. In total, 23 semi-structured interviews were completed with the DEI professionals, with five major themes emerging from the results, including: (1) Reorganization of Priorities, (2) Reactive vs. Proactive Work, (3) Challenges of Virtual DEI Engagement, (4) Emotional Fatigue, and (5) Validation of DEI work. The implications for future research and practitioners will be further explored.

  • The Impact of Minimum Gift Requirement and Number of Fundraising Staff on
           University Athletics Donors

    • Authors: Nels Popp, Ashley Kavanagh, Jonathan A. Jensen
      Pages: 54 - 71
      Abstract: Many prior studies examining fundraising within university athletics programs have explored the effect of donor motivations and athletic success on giving, but the current study is the first to examine the impact of price setting and staffing (two factors under the control of athletics administrators) on number of donors. The purpose of the current study was to examine the relationship between (a) minimum gift price point and (b) total number of fundraising personnel, on the total number of donors at the lowest reward tier within NCAA Division I athletics departments. The research team used hierarchical regression to develop four models to examine the relationships between key variables and total number of donors. Independent variables utilized included university conference affiliation, institutional factors, athletic success factors, and the variables of interest, which were minimum gift amount required to join the donor program and the total number of fundraising staff. The dependent variable examined was total number of donors at the lower reward tier. The final model explained 73.1% of the variance in number of donors. The variables of interest (minimum price point and total number of staff) explained 20.8% of the variance when controlling for key factors such as athletic success and conference affiliation.

  • Leading Student-Athletes to Success Beyond the Field: Assessing the Role
           of Leadership in Adopting High Impact Practices in Intercollegiate

    • Authors: Jessica Braunstein-Minkove, Nicolo Russolillo, Ryan King-White
      Pages: 72 - 105
      Abstract: Given the current culture and climate on college campuses, it is imperative that all students have the opportunity to participate in deep learning experiences, impacting their time on campus and preparing them for their impending transition into the workforce. While high impact practices (HIPs) are readily available, and encouraged, to the majority of the student population, it can be difficult for student-athletes to partake in such endeavors. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the role that leadership plays in the integration (or lack thereof) of HIPs into the student-athlete development process. Through semi-structured, phenomenological interviews with 21 staff members (administration, coaching, academics) of a mid-major Division I intercollegiate athletic program, the researchers were able to further understand the impact of leadership on HIPs in intercollegiate athletics. With this, three primary themes, with multiple sub-themes, emerged. These include Resources, Messaging, and Relationships. While there was a mix of positive and negative aspects of each theme, the general idea was that without a university directive, or a transformational leader, this type of pursuit would not be an overarching priority. Both theoretical and practical implications, as well as recommendations, are discussed.
