Boston University supports an intercollegiate athletics program competing within the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division 1 environment where our student-athletes strive for excellence in sportsmanship, scholarship, and service. This affiliation confers a responsibility to follow the extensive rules and regulations of the NCAA. As a member of the BU community, you may have interactions with prospective and enrolled student-athletes that could affect our compliance with these rules.
