The NCAA announced Thursday the creation of a new policy to educate athletes, coaches and administrators about sexual violence prevention.
As part of the policy, campus leaders must confirm that the education has taken place each year.
Athletic departments must also be knowledgeable on the subject and distribute information about related policies to student-athletes.
The NCAA Board of Governors enacted the policy at the suggestion of the Commission to Combat Campus Sexual Violence.
The new policy is the latest step in recent efforts to curtail sexual violence on college campuses.
According to the NCAA, it builds upon the 2014 release of a handbook and sexual violence prevention tool kit meant to aid administrators in creating a safe campus environment for students.
