The mission of the TCU Athletics Compliance Program is to uphold the rules and regulations of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Big 12 Conference (Big 12), and Texas Christian University (TCU); to monitor the processes and activities associated with such rules and regulations; and to educate institutional staff members, student-athletes and external constituents regarding such rules, regulations, processes and activities.
TCU is committed and obligated to the principle of institutional control in operating its Athletics Department in a manner that is consistent with the letter and the spirit of the NCAA, Big 12 and University rules and regulations.
The Office of Athletics Compliance coordinates, monitors and verifies compliance with all NCAA requirements and educates the various constituencies of the University and the community regarding NCAA and Big 12 regulations. The Athletics Compliance Office is dedicated to providing educational programs and interpretive support to ensure that all individuals involved with the Athletics Department understand and adhere to the TCU's compliance expectations.
Each individual within the Athletics Department is obligated to maintain competency in knowledge of rules, to act within his or her realm of responsibility in full compliance with the rules and to report any violations of the rules.
It is the goal of the Athletics Compliance Program to place the University in a pro-active position by educating, overseeing, and monitoring the Athletics Department and maintaining a positive compliance environment. The commitment to excellence by the entire TCU athletics family must be a priority in all aspects of the compliance program.
