With the increased enrollment of untraditional student populations, the plight of collegiate Black student-fathers has yet to be examined. They are – Black men, Black men in college, Black fathers, college student-parents, and even collegiate student-athletes in some cases. Through in-depth one-on-one phenomenological interviews, chilling details, accounts, and revelations surfaced with regard to Black masculinity; fatherhood; support systems; student and parental development; and institutional resources. Findings revealed valuable information about the experiences, perceptions, behaviors, and outcomes of collegiate Black student-fathers. Recommendations are provided for faculty and administrative personnel to better assist, understand, and serve this unique student population.
