Georgetown University Policy on Hazing and Position on Gambling
HAZING AND INITIATION RITUALS
The Georgetown University Student-Athlete Leadership Advisory Committee endorses team activities that promote unity, team spirit and respect University and Athletic Department rules and regulations. Each Captain will address their team about hazing and will not support any activity that is demeaning, harmful or causes a (teammate) to feel uncomfortable. As student-athletes in leadership roles representing Georgetown University, captains shall discourage behavior of teammates that will compromise their integrity and the University's educational mission. Student-athletes will take responsibility for their actions.
POSITION ON GAMBLING
The NCAA opposes all forms of legal illegal sports wagering. Sports wagering has the potential to undermine the integrity of sports contests and jeopardizes the welfare of student-athletes and the intercollegiate athletics community. Sports wagering demeans the competition and competitors alike by a message that is contrary to the purposes and meaning of `sport."
Sports competition should be appreciated for the inherent benefits related to participation of student-athletes, coaches, and institutions in fair contests, not the amount of money wagered on the outcome of the competition.
For these reasons, the NCAA membership has adopted specific rules prohibiting athletics department staff members and student-athletes from engaging in gambling activities as they relate to intercollegiate or professional sporting events.
