National College Players Association files civil rights complaint with U.S. Department of Education against Division I schools

Mar 22, 2022

The National College Players Association (NCPA) has filed a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, asserting that more than 350 Division I colleges are violating Black students' civil rights by imposing a collusive athlete compensation prohibition. The organization says that because a high percentage of Black students are also college athletes at these schools, the industrywide compensation limit causes a disparate impact on Black college students.
