The Sun Devil Athletics pitchfork logo symbolizes the strengths of ASU. The three prongs represent the three core principles of Sun Devil Athletics: Championship Performance, Integrity, and Graduation. These principles serve as the starting point for the commitment that Sun Devil Athletics and our sports programs have made to excel on the playing field, in the classroom, and in the community.
Integral to ASU’s focus on integrity is athletics compliance – following the rules of the NCAA and Pac-12 Conference. Athletics compliance is a responsibility shared among all Sun Devil Athletics stakeholders, including ASU fans, coaches, student-athletes, prospective student-athletes, and other representatives of the University. It is the responsibility of the Sun Devil Athletics Compliance Office to direct and manage ASU’s efforts to educate its stakeholders and to monitor compliance regarding NCAA and Pac-12 Conference rules.
