“CU-Boulder” must diligently monitor the conduct of its intercollegiate athletics program to promote compliance with all applicable rules and regulations of the NCAA. CU-Boulder follows an established reporting procedure for reviewing and reporting potential rules violations. In addition to this established reporting procedure, CU-Boulder has developed a clearly-defined process to manage situations with major implications involving campus intercollegiate athletics, including NCAA major infractions and other matters of significance. The process for managing NCAA violations includes an option of utilizing a committee external to the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics to manage the investigation of situations with major campus implications and to advise directly the Chancellor. That committee is David Clough, John Sleeman, Julie Wong, Michael Warden and depending on the issue, others as appointed by the Chancellor.
A secondary violation, as defined in NCAA Bylaw , is one that provides only a limited recruiting or competitive advantage and is isolated or inadvertent in nature. These are classified as Level I and Level II, with Level I generally considered more significant than Level II. If the NCAA Committee on Infractions determines that repeated secondary violations have occurred and that the institution is not taking appropriate action to prevent such violations, a penalty appropriate for a major violation may be imposed. The NCAA Constitution and Bylaws represent a complex set of regulations. Compliance efforts are continuous, and, although the ultimate goal is to have no violations, a compliance program that encourages self-reporting and conducts monitoring activities should report several violations (we reported 16 this past year) per year.
A major violation as defined in Bylaw , is any other violation, specifically those that provide an extensive recruiting or competitive advantage. Repeated secondary violations by a member institution may be identified as a major violation. In the history of intercollegiate athletics at CU-Boulder, the University has managed five major infractions.
1. All athletic department staff members, SAs, or CU-Boulder employees with direct involvement in athletics are obligated to report verbally or in writing any violations or possible violations of which they are aware. All other individuals (e.g., students, PSAs, CU- Boulder employees without direct involvement in athletics, members of the community) are encouraged to report verbally or in writing any alleged, rumored, or suspected violations.
A report of a violation or possible violation can be made to the following: if appropriate, the immediate supervisor of the person reporting; the Associate Director of Athletics for Compliance ("Compliance Director"); the Director of Athletics, any Associate or Assistant Director of Athletics; the Faculty Athletics Representative ("FAR"); the Chancellor; the Office of University Counsel. All individuals to whom the violation or possible violation is reported, with the exception of the Compliance Director, are obligated in turn to report the violation to the Athletics Compliance Office.
A report of a violation or possible violation should include the following: date(s) and time(s) of violation; individual(s) involved in the violation; description of the violation; reason(s) the violation occurred, and if applicable, a statement of actions which have been or will be taken in order to prevent a similar violation from recurring
Can be mailed prior to September 1 (or June 15 th for MBB)
Student Athletes in the sports of Football, Men’s Basketball, Volleyball & Soccer are eligible to eat training table in the following circumstances: If you are a full scholarship Student-Athlete-you are eligible for Training Table the nights your sport program has elected to eat.

Student Athletes in the sports of Football, Men’s Basketball, Volleyball & Soccer are eligible to eat training table in the following circumstances: *If you are a walk-on or a Student-Athlete on a partial scholarship & * Live Off-Campus & a SA in one of these 4 sport programs mentioned above: You may purchase one Training Table meal per day at the same rate that CU charges in the dorms for dinner, which is $ In order to do this, you must purchase a full “training table meal plan” directly from Dennis Ristow in the Business Office at Gate #2, (or you could purchase a 19-meal plan from CU Dining Services and “exchange” your dorm meal for the TT meal. You then would be able to eat TT the nights your coach has opted to eat TT.
Yes, the NCAA rules changed the rules two years ago (May 2007). Walk-ons and partial-scholarship student- athletes no longer have to have the previously required: Practice conflict Take place during the actual playing/practice season in order to be eligible for Training Table.
Glad you asked…… If you are a walk-on or a SA on a partial scholarship, you MUST purchase the “Training Table Meal Plan” in advance for the semester— to do that, you need to see Dennis Ristow in the Business Office at Gate #2. Just a Reminder that you MUST present your BuffOne card to the checker at Training Table in order to gain access to the meal. If you do not have your card, you will be denied admittance.
Do NOT try to sneak into Training Table. Do NOT take “to go” boxes out of the Training Table unless you have prior authorization from Ceal Barry. Never take a “to go” box for a boyfriend, girlfriend, roommate or family member— this is an extra benefit. Oh, did I mention—you MUST have your BuffOne card
Intent: To Specify that a SA who does not receive an athletics scholarship covering the full cost of board, including walk-ons or partial scholarship SAs, may purchase one training table meal per day at the same rate that CU deducts from the board allowance of SAs who receive a full-ride scholarship— which is $10.96 Effective Date: May 2007
Let’s specifically talk about CU Students, CU Student-athletes, student managers, student trainers, student workers, volunteer workers in your program. ONLY student-athletes, full-time staff members or CU Ambassador’s can be involved in the on-campus recruiting experience—see bylaw below……. NCAA Bylaw (excerpt only) The student host must be either a current student-athlete or a student designated in a manner consistent with the institution's policy for providing campus visits or tours to prospective students in general.
NCAA Bylaw Student Support Group Assisting in the Recruiting CU may not provide a free meal or entertainment to a member of an institutional student support group (CU Ambassador’s Program) that assists in the recruitment of a PSA during an official visit unless the student is designated as the one student host for that PSA. Any additional arrangement between the CU Athletics and members of such a support group (e.g., compensation, providing a uniform) is left to the discretion of the institution.
2006 SA Reinstatement Decision Date: Division: I Involved Sports: Football Facts: A student worker in the football recruiting office participated in a meal during a football PSA official visit on 1/28/05. The violation was discovered by the athletics compliance office when reviewing football official visit records. Additional Facts: LEVEL II. Institution Action: The athletic compliance office reiterated the proper application of the rule and that the prohibition against student support groups involved in recruiting includes student groups of student managers, trainers and student workers as well as the typical student supports when the activity is centered around recruiting. Since the student worker is not a student-athlete, no restitution was required; however, the student worker is ineligible for intercollegiate athletics at the institution until he makes restitution for the value of the impermissible benefit.
1998 SA Reinstatement Decision Date: Division: I Involved Sports: Men's Basketball Facts: Three student managers accompanied prospects on official visits and were provided meals at no cost. Student managers were selected to drive the prospects during their visits because they had cars, were not members of the team and coaching staff did not realize they would be considered student hosts. Additional Facts: --- Institution Action: Required student managers to repay the cost of their meals and reviewed appropriate legislation with coaching staff. Enforcement Action: No further action.
Date Published: April 20, 1988 Item Ref: Column 16 #2 Educational Column: The Division I subcommittee of the Legislation and Interpretations Committee has considered the application of Bylaw 1-2-(b) and 1-9 and determined that a spouse of an institutional coaching staff member is permitted to contact a PSA, the prospect's parents (or legal guardian), or the prospect's spouse only during the PSA's official or unofficial visit to the member institution, thus restricting such contact to a 30-mile radius of the institution's main campus.
Date Published: April 20, 1988 Educational Column: The Division I subcommittee of the Legislation and Interpretations Committee has considered a previous Council-approved interpretation (August 1987) and agreed that while a PSA may visit a locker room after a game when athletics representatives are present in the room, the provisions of Bylaw 1-2-(b) would preclude a member institution from introducing an athletics representative (e.g., a former student- athlete) to a PSA in the locker room, inasmuch as such an introduction is not considered "incidental" contact.
Date Published: September 16, 1985 Under the provisions of Bylaw 1-8-(j) and Case No. 233 (page 322, NCAA Manual), a PSA's entertainment shall take place only in the area within a 30-mile radius of the institution's main campus, and such entertainment must be at a scale comparable to that of normal student life and not excessive in nature. It is important to note that for Divisions I and II member institutions, Bylaw 1-2-(b) strictly forbids in-person, off-campus contacts with PSA by representatives of an institution's athletics interests at any time or location. This being the case, if a PSA's entertainment is off the institution's main campus but within the permissible 30-mile radius, the provisions of Bylaw 1-2(b) would prohibit in-person contact by representatives of the institution's athletics interests.
