November 11, 2008 · Print This Article

Washington, DC - The NCAA Division II Committee on Infractions Report, released today, marks the official end of an exhaustive internal review conducted by the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) and the official end of the NCAA’s own investigative inquiry into the policies and practices of the institution’s Intercollegiate Department of Athletics for the 2000-2001 through 2003-2004 academic years.
In response to the report, President Sessoms, who assumed the reigns at UDC just two months ago declares, “UDC understands and accepts today’s ruling by the NCAA Infractions Committee.” Sessoms further states, “The penalties proposed in the Committee’s report are consistent with our own recommendations and what we have already self-imposed. We understand that during the years 2000-2001 through 2003-2004 UDC failed to effectively carry out its responsibilities and obligations as a Division II member institution. UDC regrets that the violations occurred. The University has already taken proactive steps to ensure future compliance with all NCAA regulations.”
