Additional Info
Required Notification Regarding NCAA Sanctions 
Pursuant to the terms of its probation with the NCAA, Kean has been required to post the following statement in the alumni newsletter: 
On April 19, 2012, the NCAA Committee on Infractions issued a report that concluded more than a year of cooperative work between Kean University and NCAA enforcement staff aimed at correcting rules compliance issues related, in large part, to the management of the women’s basketball team at the University.
The NCAA Committee on Infractions directed the University to inform prospective student-athletes in the sport of women’s basketball of the violations that occurred and that the institution is on probation for four (4) years (through April 16, 2016). The infractions included problems with a foreign tour taken by the women’s basketball team in the summer of 2010. Although an otherwise legitimate academic course was made available to the women on the trip, it was improperly organized and resulted in extra benefits under NCAA rules for the course and for financial aid received by some of the student-athletes involved. Also, a short-term grade change in one course for a women’s basketball student-athlete was handled improperly and resulted in an extra benefit. Further, on a team trip during the 2011-12 academic year (while the investigation was ongoing) the former head coach provided two women’s basketball student-athletes with improper “loans” to allow them to be involved in activities with other team members. For her role in all of these problems, the former head coach was found to have failed to “promote an atmosphere for compliance” and received a four-year penalty. All of these violations were acknowledged by the University, and the coach had been relieved of her duties prior to the University’s appearance before the Committee.
In regard to the four-year period of probation, its significance is that the University will be filing reports with the NCAA during the period to affirm its compliance with all applicable rules and to explain its educational and monitoring efforts. Being “on probation” does not carry any other sanctions or impose restrictions on the activities of the women’s basketball team or its student-athletes.
