Article "Does UR Comply with Title IX?"

Description

This article considers the University of Richmond's attempts to comply with Title IX requirements through adding a women's soccer team to the University's athletic department. A school is considered compliant with Title IX if they have equal amounts of men and women participating in sports or if there is shown to be a history of women's program expansion. Ruth Goehring, the associate athletic director, said that "We're [UR] probably 60-40 in participation, which is why we added soccer to get us closer to the 50-50 proportionality." One of the areas that the school's needs the most improvement in is the availability of athletic scholarships for women, but the question is where to divert funding from in order to pay for those scholarships.
