To enhance student diversity, kinesiology departments must understand those factors facilitating and hampering enrollment decisions among prospective minority candidates. The primary purpose of this study was to identify facilitators and barriers to kinesiology-based academic programs among minority students. The secondary purpose was to determine if perceived facilitators and barriers differed from White students in the same programs.
