Title: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Dual Advising of Student-Athletes in STEM Fields
Lead Presenter: Nikola Grafnetterova
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Room: Poster
Abstract: Despite the nation's critical need, National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division I student-athletes represent a small portion of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) graduates. STEM undergraduate student-athletes benefit from the assistance of academic and athletic advisors; this study explored their experiences with this dual advising. Grounded in Terenzini and Reason's (2005) comprehensive model of influences on student learning and persistence, the findings highlighted the importance of effective communication and cross-campus collaboration among academic and athletic advisors to support STEM student-athletes. Specifically, participants depicted support, stability, suppleness, and skill as components of effective dual advising of STEM student-athletes. However, the study exposed confusion about the academic and athletic units' roles and responsibilities that diminished the effectiveness of the collaborative efforts. Note: This study received research grant support from NACADA: Global Community for Academic Advising.
