Title

Memo from William Flynn and James Frank to Chief Executive Officers, Faculty Representatives and Directors of Athletics of NCAA Member Institutions

Description

This is a letter from William Flynn and James Frank, President and Secretary-Treasurer of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) respectively, towards the Chief Executive Officers, Faculty Representatives and Directors of Athletics of NCAA Member Institutions. The writers inform that the Office for Civil RIghts of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) is investigating institutions for which the office has received complaints of Title IX violation. Accordingly, University of Akron, University of Bridgeport, Cornell University, Howard University, University of Kansas, University of Michigan, Oklahoma State University and Washington State University were eight among the 80 institutions that have complaints pending, a statistic that did not include those colleges and universities against which complaints had recently been filed. Moreover, the memo states the process that the institutions must undertake if they are subject to a Title IX compliance review by the Office of Civil Rights. This process involves a data request by the office, which shall be responded to and analyzed by the office, followed with on-site investigations and interviews at the college or university and post-on-site analysis of data collected. The letter specifies that failure to demonstrate compliance with Title IX would result in a "termination of federal financial assistance" received by the institution.
