What is the role of a booster and how does that affect me?

Learn how to maintain a culture of compliance at the University of Miami.

Per the NCAA guidelines, a booster is a representative of the University of Miami athletics department. This includes an individual, corporate entity, or other organization. This also includes any individual or group who has been a member of any organization that supports or has been involved in promoting University of Miami athletics or has made financial donations to UM athletics or to an athletics booster organization. Additionally, this group includes former University of Miami student-athletes and current or former season ticket holders.

It’s important to note that an individual or group will always be considered a booster once they fall into one of the aforementioned categories. As such, boosters, along with donors, contributors, and supporters, must refrain from participating in certain activities. These include contacting or providing benefits to recruits, students-athletes, and their circle of influence, including family members and friends.
