Violation Reports

How to report a violation
Should any chief executive officer, faculty athletics representative, athletics director, and/or coach become aware of an apparent institutional violation involving an athlete or institutional representative of any member institution, it shall be the responsibility of the individual to notify their athletics director and faculty athletics representative of that violation immediately.

This notification shall take place within five days of receiving the information.
