Indiana University bans athletes with sexual violence past

Indiana logo

Taking a stand against sexual assault, Indiana University recently changed its policy about prospective student-athletes with a record of sex crimes. Indiana University Athletics shall conduct an appropriate inquiry into every prospective student-athlete's background consistent with the due diligence below prior to providing him/her athletically-related aid or allowing him/her to practice or compete. The league defined serious misconduct as "sexual assault, domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence".

The Faculty Athletics Committee approved the new policy last week. Enis has pleaded not guilty to having an improper relationship with a girl under age 13.

The Southeastern Conference now implements such a ban on transfer students between their member schools; it's to be seen if Indiana's policy will spread to other fellow Big Ten schools. Indiana University's conference, the Big Ten, has so far left decisions to individual institutions.

Tesla recalling cars to address brake defect
There have been no reports of the electronic parking brake failing to hold a vehicle, the Elon Musk-led automaker said . Late previous year , Tesla acquired Germany's Groham Engineering and formed Tesla Advanced Automation Germany.

IN athletic director Fred Glass is credited with helping lead the passing of the new policy, which includes an appellate process for potential athletes affected.

National Sports Journalism Center Director Galen Clavio says the new policy is proactive rather than reactive.

"My hope is that we're leading in this area, and maybe others will follow with, maybe not the exact same policy, but one that fits their particular institutions", said Glass. In addition, prospective student-athletes should be specifically asked about any previous or potential arrests, convictions, protective orders, probations, suspensions, expulsions, or other discipline involving sexual violence or any other matter.
