Dear Boilermaker Fans,
Purdue University, as a member of the Big Ten Conference
and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, is responsible
for ensuring that its student-athletes, faculty, staff, alumni,
and friends abide with conference and NCAA regulations. Under
these rules, alumni and friends can be categorized as "representatives
of Purdue University athletics interests."
This information is presented as a quick reference to the
many NCAA rules which apply to our "athletics representatives."
Not all applicable situations are included, so please call
if you have questions. The department appreciates your interest
and support, but reminds you that an inappropriate contact
or an inadvertent action on your part can jeopardize the eligibility
of our prospects and student-athletes. When in doubt, the
safest action is to check first and act second.
The University is proud to have the loyal support of our
alumni and friends for its athletic programs. As we strive
for national prominence, we must always seek the highest standard
of ethical conduct. With your assistance and cooperation,
we believe we can accomplish both goals.
Stay on board.
Morgan J. Burke
