Project Summary

In 2008, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Student-Athlete Experiences Data Archive was launched to provide valuable information about both intercollegiate athletics and higher education to interested scholars. The NCAA collects a wealth of data from its member institutions and their student-athletes. These data are collected to help answer research questions posed by college presidents, athletics personnel, faculty, student-athlete groups, the media, researchers and others in the higher education community and to assist in the development of national athletics policies. The NCAA Student-Athlete Experiences Data Archive is the repository for the publicly available data that are part of this initiative. This archive includes user-friendly data collections related to graduation rates; team-level Academic Progress Rates in Division I; and individual-level data on the experiences of current student-athletes from the NCAA's Growth, Opportunities, Aspirations and Learning of Students in college study (GOALS). The NCAA hopes to continue publishing data like these to assist researchers interested in student-athlete academic performance and well-being.
