Yale University Athletics Compliance
Yale University's commitment to excellence extends beyond the classroom into all endeavors, including athletics, that contribute to a rich and broad liberal education. As a proud member of the Ivy League, the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the Yale University Department of Athletics aims to further this mission by creating and sustaining an athletics program consistent with the values and in compliance with the rules and regulations set forth by the University and these governing bodies.

The Yale University athletics compliance program consists of three major components: rules education, monitoring systems, enforcement.

Rules Education
Yale University seeks to educate its constituencies, including but not limited to, student-athletes, coaches, athletics staff members, University staff members outside of athletics, and representatives of athletics interests (boosters) regarding Ivy, ECAC, and Yale University rules and regulations. The primary methods of rules education are monthly newsletters, regular email tips, brochures, and compliance-related sessions at various staff meetings. Additionally, rules interpretations and education are provided in a timely manner throughout the year as well as when questions arise from any constituency. A broad-based rules education program provides the foundation and culture necessary to cultivate, sustain, and enhance a successful program.

Monitoring Systems
The Yale athletics compliance program monitors various activities, including but not limited to, amateurism, recruiting, eligibility, financial aid, and extra benefits. Monitoring systems are in place to ensure rules compliance and maintain accurate records of athletics activities at Yale University.

Enforcement is a necessary component to a successful athletics compliance program. Enforcement action will be taken when any institutional, conference, or NCAA rules violations occur and such action will be consistent with the standards of the appropriate governing body.
