IMPACT: DePaul's Student-Athlete Job Mentoring Program
As someone that supports DePaul Athletics, you are probably aware that the NCAA considers you a “Representative of DePaul’s Athletics interests.” This means that your participation in IMPACT must adhere to the NCAA guidelines established for interaction with enrolled student-athletes. These rules are constantly changing and may be completely different than when you were in an Blue Demon uniform. Your attention to the material below is extremely important.
You are not permitted to provide student-athletes (or his / her friends or relatives) with any “extra benefit” or special arrangement that is not available to all other DePaul students. For example, it would NOT be permissible for you to:
provide on or off-campus transportation or the use of an automobile
Below are examples of constructive activities for you and a DePaul student-athlete which are permissible under NCAA regulations. You may:
return a phone call to a student-athlete regarding this program or a summer job opportunity
The acceptance of “extra benefits” by an enrolled student-athlete will affect his or her eligibility to participate in intercollegiate athletics. If you have any questions about NCAA legislation, or if you believe a violation of these rules may have occurred, please call the DePaul Athletics Departmental Compliance Office at (773) 325-7502.
With this in mind, we look forward to working as partners in this endeavor. We hope you will find, that helping DePaul student-athletes is a very worthwhile and rewarding activity. As you get to know our student - athletes, we’re sure you’ll agree they constitute a very impressive group of young people.
