Abstract

Controlling for precollege learning orientations and other influences, male athletes competing in nonrevenue sports at 18 four-year institutions tended to have lower levels of Openness to Diversity and Challenge and Learning for Self-Understanding than male nonathletes. Male football and basketball players did not differ from their nonathlete counterparts in orientations to learning.
