Letter from William H. Leftwich and Chuck Boone to E. Bruce Heilman

Description

This letter is from William H. Leftwich, the University of Richmond Vice President for Student Affairs, and Chuck Boone, about the August 20th, 1980 memo from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) titled, "Commencement of Title IX Intercollegiate Athletics Investigations." It provides a brief overview of the memo, specifically that the Office of Civil Rights will investigate institutions that have one or more Title IX complaints lodged against them. The University of Richmond does not have a complaint against them at this time. The authors then go on to discuss how the University offers seven and a half grants for women and 120 grants for men in the intercollegiate athletic program. The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) guidelines indicate a "proportionality requirement." The letter directs attention to a report titled, "Report on Level of Competition for Non-Revenue Sports for the Board of Trustees of the University of Richmond," that examined non-revenue sports and recommends that the University take steps to "carry us closer to compliance."
