Gallup Study: Undergraduate Experiences and Post-College Outcomes of NCAA Student-Athletes

As a follow-up to their 2016 study, Gallup has produced a new report on the college experiences and life outcomes of college graduates who competed in NCAA athletics in Divisions I, II or III.  Gallup interviewed nearly 5,000 former NCAA student-athletes about their college experiences and current well-being, and compared the responses to 69,000 non-student-athlete graduates from the same colleges. 

In the 2020 study, Gallup found that NCAA student-athletes engaged in important undergraduate experiences at higher rates than their non-athlete peers and are more likely to be thriving in many post-college domains.
