Identity, Leadership, and Success: A Study of Black Male Student-Athletes at the University of Missouri

While scholars have examined important variables related to the identities of Black male student-athletes nationally, there is much to learn about MU Black male student-athletes. This qualitative study aimed to better understand MU Black male student-athletes, their aspirations and the roles MU Athletics can play in leading them toward healthy identity and leadership development. Study findings are being used to help MU Athletics identify programmatic gaps, opportunities, and best practices that can be implemented and shared with other NCAA and professional athletic institutions.
