dc.description.abstract INTRODUCTION: The scandals and violations that occur in today's intercollegiate athletic programs are hardly a new phenomenon. One of the main reasons for the formation of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in 1906 was to assist institutions in gaining control over their athletic programs. Although steps have been taken to improve intercollegiate athletics, serious problems still exist. As a result of the increasing complexity of intercollegiate athletics and the number of violations that continue to occur, many institutions have created compliance positions. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the responsibilities and the educational, professional, and personal characteristics of Division I compliance coordinators. SIGNIFICANCE: The findings obtained from the study will be a comprehensive resource on the topic and could be used by individuals preparing for positions in compliance as well as by institutions considering the creation of such positions. METHODS: All Division I compliance coordinators as listed in the 1991 NCAA Directory of Compliance Coordinators were purposely targeted to participate in this study. The instrument used in the study was a questionnaire. The questionnaire was specifically designed to collect information regarding the responsibilities and the educational, professional, and personal characteristics of Division I compliance coordinators.Each compliance coordinator was mailed a cover letter of explanation, a questionnaire, and a pre-addressed, stamped envelope. The cover letter explained the purpose of the study, who was selected to participate in the study, and how the results would be used. A two-week deadline was specified for the return of the completed questionnaire.To avoid confusion in recording returns and for later follow-up purposes, each questionnaire was coded with a number in the upper right hand corner. Individuals who had not responded by the two-week deadline were sent a second cover letter of explanation, a questionnaire, and a pre-addressed, stamped envelope. Once again, a two-week deadline was stipulated. Computations were made in order to analyze the individual responses of the returned questionnaires. The statistics were combined in order to provide an overall analysis of Division I compliance coordinators. en_US
