The purpose of this study was to determine the specific issues and concerns that athletic trainers face in the college and university setting. A secondary purpose was to solicit recommendations in addressing the issues and concerns that are present in the profession. Seventy-two certified athletic trainers in the Eastern Athletic Trainers Association (EATA) completed a survey to evaluate their attitudes on the issues and concerns facing athletic trainers in higher education institutions. Those surveyed were asked to identify what were the top issues and concerns facing athletic trainers and what recommendations that they had for addressing these issues. The findings of the study showed that the factors outlined in the research were consistent with those identified previously as issues and concerns that face athletic trainers in Division III institutions. Also, the findings revealed that there were several correlations between the demographics of the athletic trainers and their attitudes about the athletic training profession.
