College Athletes

Current NCAA student-athletes identify values, build character and examine the role college athletics plays in higher education. Athletes return to campus with invaluable leadership skills; a thorough understanding of the differences between NCAA divisions as well as campus, conference office and national office responsibilities; and an expanded peer network.

They learn about careers in college sports and how to become the next leaders within the industry. Resources available to the athletes include test preparation materials, financial literacy information, online education and behavioral assessments.
