Saint Joseph’s is First University to Forbid Legal Wagering on School’s Athletics
Saint Joseph’s University has forbidden its students and faculty from betting on school’s athletics, despite sports betting being legal and regulated in Pennsylvania, writes Brett Smiley for the Sports Handle.
The updated student handbook sets out the new interim policy, which states that students, faculty, staff, contractors, and members of the Board of Trustees are forbidden from placing “an otherwise legal sports wager on any team, contest or event, or individual affiliated with the Saint Joseph’s University Department of Athletics.”
According to the policy, anyone who violate these rules “will be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the applicable University procedures that implement sanctions for students, faculty, and staff.”
