Title IX Panel planning meeting

Title IX Panel planning meeting
Tuesday, Feb 27, 10:30-11:30am

Baker Center Room 501 (http://www.ohio.edu/center)
Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

Since this is the 35th anniversary year for Title IX, there seems to be a lot of interest in having a panel on Title IX (related to issues other than athletics). We have scheduled a planning meeting for those who are interested in pulling this together. All who are interested are invited to send ideas and/or join us.

Contact Judy Daso (daso -at- ohio.edu), Librarian Emerita, or Dianne Bouvier (bouvier -at- ohio.edu), Institutional Equity, with ideas/suggestions and for further info.

This event will be addressing Title IX’s effect broadly across campus. This is a separate event from the Women’s Herstory Celebration 2007: Women in Sport which also has a Title IX component, but is focused on athletics.

Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 states that:
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
