TITLE IX

Landmark 1972 civil rights law that states no person shall be discriminated against or denied participation in educational programs or activities on the basis of sex at institutions that receive federal financial assistance.

Girls' high school sports participation has increased more than 1,000% since, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Collegiate sport participation jumped more than 500%.
In the 50 years since its implementation, Title IX has given countless Lumberjacks and Beavers the opportunity to pursue sports they love. It’s not always been a smooth road -- nor has it always been perfectly equal -- but it’s a critical fight for the respect that Title IX promises.
