Understanding athletics compliance

By Life@TheU
As part of the University community, we’re all charged with learning and abiding by NCAA rules, which impact UM student-athletes, recruits, coaches, and boosters.

The rules set forth by the NCAA and ACC are of utmost importance to the University of Miami and its department of intercollegiate athletics. Athletics compliance is the responsibility of everyone associated with the University of Miami’s athletics program, including coaches, student-athletes, athletics department personnel, faculty, staff, volunteers, alumni, boosters, and other supporters of the University of Miami.

The compliance office at athletics is responsible for leading and coordinating the University of Miami’s compliance efforts and acts as a resource for internal and external constituencies regarding NCAA and ACC compliance issues. Their goals include the following:

  • Educating coaches, student-athletes, staff, and supporters regarding NCAA and ACC rules and the compliance expectations of the University of Miami.
  • Controlling and operating the athletics program in accordance with all applicable NCAA, ACC, and institutional rules to maintain a culture of compliance.
  • Monitoring all aspects of the University's athletics programs to ensure compliance; identifying and reporting to the NCAA all instances in which compliance has not been achieved; and affirming that appropriate corrective actions are taken.
  • Serving coaches, student-athletes, staff, and supporters by providing accurate and timely interpretations of the rules and assisting them in their compliance efforts.
  • Helping all fans and friends of the University of Miami’s athletics program comply with all applicable NCAA, conference, and institutional rules.
