The 1972 passage of Title IX forever changed higher education, banning sex-based discrimination in educational programs that receive federal funding and as a result, greatly expanded opportunities for women in collegiate athletics. Yet, even as women now make up 44 percent of NCAA student athletes, glaring inconsistencies remain — and 50 years later, there is still more work to be done.
Join us as we reflect on this landmark law and examine the path forward in the virtual forum, "The Legacy of Title IX for College Athletics." Our panel of experts will share their thoughts on a half-century’s progress, while offering recommendations for the future.
  • Without Title IX, where might college athletics be today?
  • What impact has Covid-19 had on institutions’ ability to maintain compliance with Title IX and what are the legal implications of noncompliance?
  • What opportunities for continued progress exist and how can colleges create more equitable athletics programs for both men and women athletes?
