NCAA, Compensation, Exploitation
Cook, Justen, "The Issue of Compensation: Should NCAA Athletes be Compensated Above Their Scholarships" (2018). Senior Honors Theses. 808.
There is an issue of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) student-athletes being exploited by their respective universities and a need for change in the way the student-athletes are being compensated for their efforts. The history of the NCAA has established the landscape of the organization today. The ways in which NCAA student-athletes are exploited can be investigated through a review of the history of the NCAA, court cases involving compensation of student-athletes, including the legal aspects of compensating the athletes, and a plan to potentially alleviate the turmoil that has taken place within the NCAA.
