dc.description.abstract Student retention has been a buzzword in collegiate recreation in the past few years. Many researchers have found that collegiate recreation participation has a correlation to student retention and cumulative grade point average (Kampf & Teske 2013; Forrester, 2015). Even with legal efforts Americans with Disabilities Act (2011) made to improve the rights of persons with disabilities there is not much literature surrounding this population. The purpose of this study was to explore a potential correlation between adaptive recreation participation and student retention and cumulative GPA. The ANOVA, F (2,399) = 1.406, p = .246, indicated there was no significant difference in cumulative GPA’s across the three groups. Likewise the odds ratio results indicate that participating in the adaptive recreation group does not show statistical significance towards retention. While not statistically significant, the data does trend in favor of the adaptive recreation group, and illustrate a need for further research.
