Compliance Corner: Athletics Donations

With the great success that our student-athletes and athletic programs have had both on and off the field, the Athletic Department is consistently asked for donations to help support the fundraising activities of various schools and charitable organizations in the community.

The NCAA has put in place bylaws to help preserve the eligibility of student-athletes, as well as maintain the integrity of the recruitment of prospective student-athletes. According to these bylaws, collegiate institutions like the University of Miami may provide donations (tickets, autographs, etc.) only to charitable, educational, or non-for-profit organizations. These donations however, may not be used to help support high school athletic programs or be earmarked in any way to benefit recruited prospective student-athletes.

In men’s basketball specifically, donations from a university may not be made to non-profit organizations that expend funds for the benefit of non-scholastic teams (e.g., AAU teams), recruits, or individuals associated with recruits.

If you are interested in asking the University of Miami for a donation to a charitable cause or for student-athletes to participate in your promotional activity, the Athletics Department asks that you complete the University of Miami’s Donation/Promotional Request form available at hurricanesports.com. As always, your efforts to help the University maintain a culture of compliance are greatly appreciated.

For more compliance information, follow the UM Athletics Department on Twitter (@UCompliance), like them on Facebook (www.facebook.com/UCompliance), or contact them via email, athleticscompliance@miami.edu.

Sexual Assault Resource Team (SART) Volunteer Opportunities

The UM Counseling Center’s Sexual Assault Resource Team (SART) is seeking dedicated, warm and empathic faculty, staff, and graduate student volunteers to serve during the 2018 calendar year. SART is often the first line of response for UM students who have been sexually assaulted, molested, or battered, and has supported sexual assault survivors and concerned others since 1992.

Volunteers provide hotline callers with much-needed emotional support, information, and referrals, in addition to help accessing resources when appropriate. Volunteers receive comprehensive training in taking calls from students in a variety of sexual assault-related situations, orientation to UM’s varied resources for those who have been sexually victimized, and ongoing support from licensed mental health professionals at the Counseling Center. (Training is required for new volunteers, and will take place on February 2, 2018.)

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Dr. Audrey Cleary at the Counseling Center at 305-284-5511 0r a.cleary@miami.edu.
