This volume is but a step in correcting the dearth of literaturespecific to community college athletics. Within this volume, webring together scholars and practitioners from various academicdisciplines and geographic locations to present information,discussion, and research on issues related to athletics at thecommunity college.

As we examine issues related to community college athletics, itis not our intent to answer all pressing questions on these topics.Rather, our purpose is to furnish a mechanism for further dialogueand improved practices, and to bring awareness of the importance ofthese issues for community colleges. Accordingly, the informationwill interest not only those whose work focuses directly on studentathletes and athletics but also everyone who values the communitycollege and its role in promoting success among its many types ofstudents.

Intended for a broad audience of community college leaders,faculty, athletic staff and coaches, and researchers, this volumeis an indispensable resource for the insitution committed to itscollege athletics program.
