Gender equity and Title IX in 1992 : [an honors thesis (HONRS 499)]
It seems that each year, one issue or topic comes to the forefront in college athletics. For 1992, the issue has been gender equity and compliance with Title IX. Ironically, the subject has received more attention in the year that marks the 20th anniversary of Title IX than any other time in the past two decades. This can attributed to several factors including recent Supreme Court rulings and the budget cuts many colleges and universities are being forced to make. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the history of Title IX, particularly in the judicial system, the status of gender equity and compliance with Title IX by NCAA member-institutions, and the future of gender equity in intercollegiate athletics.
