The University of Virginia’s College at Wise (UVA-Wise) is ushering in a new regulation that will help discipline student-athletes who committed sexual assault.
Under the Tracy Rule, university administrators require athletes to undergo thorough background checks. If they discover that an athlete has committed sexual assault or violence, UVA-Wise will ban the student from participating in sports.

This rule protects our campus community from predators and UVA Wise is one of only 2️⃣ schools in the country to recognize and enforce this policy.
