Booster Presentation

Under NCAA rules, our athletics department is responsible for any infractions caused by our donors whether they are intentional or accidental.  Because of this, we ask for your assistance and encourage you to contact our department should you have any questions pertaining to NCAA rules.  In addition, should you feel that an infraction has taken place, we ask that you contact our staff in order for us to complete a proper investigation.  Communication with our department, and more specifically the compliance office, is the best way to protect our program and all of our student-athletes.

We have created this presentation in order to provide you with a good understanding of what we feel are the most applicable rules that our supporters need to be aware of.
