Title IX

2019-20 Campus Sexual Violence Attestation Form

In accordance with the Association’s sexual violence prevention efforts, the NCAA Board of Governors adopted an Association-wide policy, recommended by the NCAA Commission to Combat Campus Sexual Violence, in August 2017 to reinforce previous Association efforts.

The policy requires schools to focus on sexual violence prevention each year by having each university chancellor/president, director of athletics and Title IX coordinator* annually attest that:

  1. The athletics department is fully knowledgeable about, integrated in, and compliant with institutional policies and processes regarding sexual violence prevention and proper adjudication and resolution of acts of sexual violence.
  2. The institutional policies and processes regarding sexual violence prevention and adjudication, and the name and contact information for the campus Title IX coordinator*, are readily available within the department of athletics, and are provided to student-athletes.
  3. All student-athletes, coaches and staff have been educated on sexual violence prevention, intervention and response, to the extent allowable by state law and collective bargaining agreements.

Further, the athletics department will cooperate with college or university investigations into reports and matters related to sexual violence involving student-athletes and athletics department staff in a manner compliant with institutional policies for all students.

*For international members, the Title IX coordinator or institutional staff member with comparable responsibilities.
