Welcome to the Brown University Athletic Compliance web pages. In the spirit of a university that provides its students with educational opportunities both broad and deep, Brown is committed to sustaining one of the most wide-ranging NCAA Division I intercollegiate sports programs for men and women in the country. The athletic program plays an essential role in teaching students to conduct themselves with honesty and integrity, make sacrifices, strive for excellence, persevere through adversity, and compete with dignity and pride while developing a commitment to teamwork and service to the community. Accordingly, all individuals involved with athletics at Brown must be dedicated to the spirit and the intent of all Brown University, Ivy League, ECAC and NCAA rules.
The Brown University Compliance Office has created this page as a guide to NCAA rules and regulations for our fans, friends and prospective student-athletes. Brown takes pride in operating our athletics programs with integrity. We are dedicated to enforcing adherence to the rules and regulations of the NCAA and the Ivy League and encouraging fair play and actions by our student-athletes, coaches, administrators and supporters.
NCAA rules and regulations can be complex, and every situation is different. The information provided on these pages are guides and outlines to the rules and regulations which apply. Every possible situation cannot be covered, so we encourage you to contact our compliance office regarding any questions or situations.
The goal of the Compliance Office is to provide the education and support that our student-athletes, coaches, administrators and supporters need to make the right decisions and comply with the rules. We welcome your questions, so when in doubt, contact us!
