The University of Arizona is falling short on its commitment to teach Wildcat athletes and coaches about preventing sexual assault and domestic violence, a national expert says.

Brenda Tracy works closely with the NCAA on issues involving violence toward women and lobbies for her cause in Washington, D.C. She’s also developing a curriculum to be used by colleges across the nation.

“I know there’s people (at the UA) that want me to come, but I haven’t been contacted by the athletic department,” Tracy told the Star this week. “I’d be more than happy to go … and help get things on the right track and do better. But the first thing you have to do is be accountable and transparent and (the UA) isn’t doing either of those things right now.”

Under the NCAA’s new sexual assault education policy, which was enacted in August, all coaches, athletes and athletic department administrators are required to complete the yearly education.
