Northwestern University Athletics Compliance is committed to the principle of institutional control and will maintain all aspects of its intercollegiate athletics program in full accordance with all NCAA, Big Ten Conference, and University rules.
The commitment to operate the intercollegiate athletics program in adherence to the principle of institutional control is both institutional and individual. The University's commitment is to maintain control of its athletics programs through the responsible administrators, faculty, coaches and other institutional entities; to educate coaches, staff, student-athletes and other individuals involved with the athletics program in their institutional responsibilities under the rules; to develop operating systems within the Athletics Department and the University that provide guidance in how to work within the rules; and to discover and report any violations of the rules that occur. Each individual involved in intercollegiate athletics is obligated to maintain competency in knowledge of the rules; to act within his or her realm of responsibility in full compliance with the governing legislation; and to report any violation of NCAA, Big Ten Conference and/or institutional rules of which he or she is aware.
