- NCAA to require education in sex-abuse awareness
By Ralph D. Russo - Thursday Aug 10, 2017
NCAA member schools will be required to provide sexual-violence-awareness education for all college athletes, coaches and athletics administrators under a police announced Thursday by the organization’s board of governors.School policies on sexual violence and the name and contact information of the Title IX coordinator must be distributed throughout the athletic department and to all athletes.The announcement from the NCAA came one day after Youngstown State decided that a football player who served jail time for a rape committed while he was in high school will not be allowed to play in games this season.A move toward an NCAA policy on sexual violence was given momentum by numerous high-profile cases involving athletes and athletic departments in recent years, most notably the scandal at Baylor that led to the ouster of head coach Art Briles and the departure of the university’s athletic director and president.Two years ago, the Southeastern Conference barred schools from accepting transfers who had been dismissed from other schools for serious misconduct, defined as sexual assault, domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence.
