NCAA Division I Enforcement and Infractions Review Group


Charge of the Review Group

The NCAA Division I Enforcement and Infractions Review Group shall conduct a review of the enforcement and infractions processes. The NCAA Division I Board of Directors identified this as a strategic priority given its importance to the collegiate model, and in recognition of three separate initiatives related to the enforcement and infractions areas: (1) the required self-studies (as set forth in the Enforcement Working Group final report) conducted by the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions, NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee and the enforcement staff; (2) the 2015 autonomy resolution calling for a review of enforcement issues; and (3) the anticipated report of the Collegiate Commissioners Association Working Group on Enforcement.

To accomplish its work, the review group will review the areas identified by the Committee on Infractions, the Infractions Appeals Committee and the enforcement staff, as well as the concepts emerging from the Collegiate Commissioners Association Enforcement Working Group.

Review Group's Reporting Line

The review group reports to the NCAA Division I Council. The Council will provide a status report no later than the Board of Director's August 4, 2016, meeting, which may include legislative recommendations for consideration during 2016-17. The review group will routinely provide quarterly updates to the Board or its administrative committee.

Anticipated Areas of Review

Given that significant progress has been made in the areas of enforcement and infractions over the last three years in particular, the focus of this review will be guided primarily by the areas identified in the required self-studies, and the ideas generated as part of the anticipated Collegiate Commissioners Association report.

Anticipated Timeline

  1. May 2016 - Begin work.
  2. August 2016 - Provide report to the Board of Directors, including identified "Phase 1" issues for potential inclusion in the 2016-17 legislative cycle.
  3. 2016-17 Academic Year - Ongoing work on remaining "Phase 2" issues for potential inclusion in the 2017-18 legislative cycle
