Open Access Graduate Research Paper
College athletes--Education; College sports--Moral and ethical aspects; Universities and colleges--Admission--Moral and ethical aspects;
The purpose of this paper is to examine admissions practices and processes at Division I colleges and universities, especially as they relate to special considerations and related ethical issues. First, I will review the history of abuses in athletic recruiting and attempts at reform. Second, I will provide more recent examples of abuses and reform attempts. Finally, I will provide data from an interview I conducted at a relatively large Midwestern Division I-A public university.
