  • College Student Hazing Experiences, Attitudes, and Perceptions: Implications for Prevention


    Hazing is at odds with educational goals as it can harm students and contribute to abusive campus climates, negative publicity, and student attrition. From this perspective, hazing in any one organization or team, among any group of individuals, is an issue with campus-wide implications that go beyond the specific organizations and/or individuals involved.

  • Kinesiology Students’ Perceptions of Ambivalent Sexism


    Women’s participation in collegiate sports has steadily risen since the 1980s, yet sport-related professions and education continue to be dominated by men. In 2014, there were approximately 208,000 NCAA female student-athletes competing on 9,581 NCAA women’s sports teams, of which 43.4% had female head coaches. While female student-athletes make up almost 50% of total NCAA student-athletes, the opportunities for women as sport administrators have not progressed at the same rate as participation opportunities.

  • NASPA Response to Executive Order on Free Speech on College Campuses


    The principles of the 1st Amendment are at the very heart of the college experience and are vigorously defended and supported at American colleges and universities. The right of free speech and the well-established “marketplace of ideas” are the foundation upon which campuses manage speakers, art exhibits, protests, entertainment. and countless other activities on today’s college campus.
