Things to Know:

  • Prior to 2009, the practice was not to allow games of chance of any kind at the University, which was reflected in the purchasing guidelines for sponsorship, however, no comprehensive written policy existed.
  • Violations of university policies, including the failure to avoid a prohibited activity or obtain required approvals, will be dealt with in accordance with applicable university policies and procedures. These may include disciplinary actions up to and including termination from the university and appropriate measures as set forth in the IU Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct.
