Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The impact of concussion on college student athletes was explored through the lens of academic self-efficacy. Participants with concussion showed significantly lower self-efficacy in one area of academic performance (note-taking), which directly impacts perceived identity and occupational engagement. Participants highlighted the complexity of concussion rehabilitation and the gaps that exist during the recovery process as they attempt to maintain their roles of college student and athlete.
