Compliance here at the University of Kentucky is a wide ranging area, covering all functions of the athletic department; the most important being rules education. Keeping our student-athletes, boosters, and coaching staffs abreast of NCAA and SEC rules is the key to ensuring proper rules compliance.
Through our monthly meetings for our coaching staffs, team squad meetings, and public speaking engagements to our booster organization, we feel that word is getting out that the University of Kentucky wants to win only within the rules. Compliance monitors all activities that involve any NCAA or SEC rule, such as recruiting, financial aid, length of play and practice seasons, academics, and eligibility to name a few.
Maintaining institutional control is imperative to continue the growth and success of UK athletics. Proper rules compliance is the concern of everyone associated with the University of Kentucky, and everyone plays a role.
The University of Kentucky has been recognized for having one of the most pro-active compliance programs in the country, and look forward to taking that leadership role into the next century.
