As part of the industry outreach, the Model Rules are maintained on the University of Arizona, Race Track Industry Program’s web-site as a service to the RCI to be utilized by the entire pari-mutuel industry.
The RTIP also conducts Stewards/Judges Accreditation Schools for the racing industry, known as ROAP (Racing Officials Accreditation Program).
The faculty and students also team up with racing-related organizations to conduct research projects as class assignments and independent study. Recent projects paired students with Harness Tracks of America (HTA), the Arizona Thoroughbred Breeder's Association (ATBA) and the Thoroughbred Racing Association (TRA).
In addition, the RTIP has an Executives in Residence program designed to help racing executives/officials abroad to increase their level of education and gain a working knowledge of racing in North America.
