The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - From wire dis­patches and staff re­ports.

NCAA mem­ber schools will be re­quired to pro­vide yearly sex­ual vi­o­lence ed­u­ca­tion for all col­lege ath­letes, coaches and ath­let­ics ad­min­is­tra­tors un­der a pol­icy an­nounced Thurs­day by the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s board of gov­er­nors. Cam­pus lead­ers such as ath­letic di­rec­tors, school pres­i­dents and Ti­tle IX co­or­di­na­tors will be re­quired to at­test that ath­letes, coaches and ad­min­is­tra­tors have been ed­u­cated on sex­ual vi­o­lence.

The pol­icy was adopted from a rec­om­men­da­tion made by the Com­mis­sion to Com­bat Cam­pus Sex­ual Vi­o­lence, which was cre­ated by the board last year in re­sponse to sev­eral high-pro­file cases in­volv­ing sex­ual as­saults and ath­letic de­part­ments, in­clud­ing the scan­dal at Bay­lor.
