Baylor Compliance Policy Statement
Baylor University is committed to the NCAA's principle of institutional control in the operation of its athletics program. The cornerstone of this principle is that the University is responsible for the actions of its staff members and for the actions of any other individual or organization engaged in activities promoting the athletics interests of the institution. As a result, the responsibility for compliance with NCAA rules is shared by everyone. Each individual associated with athletics, whether as a staff member or fan, is obligated to maintain competency in his/her knowledge of the rules; to act in full compliance with the letter and the spirit of the rules within his/her realm of responsibility; and to report any known or suspected violation of NCAA, conference or institutional rules.
The responsibility to operate the University's athletics program in accordance with the principle of institutional control is both an institutional and an individual obligation. Baylor Athletics is committed to exercising institutional control through:
Employing responsible and ethical administrators, coaches, and support staff personnel;
Educating coaches, staff, student-athletes, and boosters of their responsibilities under the rules;
Providing effective lines of communication between all Baylor constituencies; and
Developing compliance and monitoring systems that provide guidance on how to work within the rules, identify and report instances where compliance has not been achieved, institute appropriate corrective measures when necessary, and establish oversight responsibility outside of the Department of Athletics.
Baylor is proud to have your loyal support and continued interest in its athletics programs; however it is important to understand that even inadvertent action on your part can put the University at risk and/or jeopardize the eligibility of a prospect or current student-athlete. As we strive for continued excellence, all of Baylor's coaches, staff, and fans must always seek the highest standard of ethical conduct. With your assistance and cooperation, we are certain to accomplish these goals.
