Journal Cover
From Volume 24 Number 3 | Spring 1996
By Paul Emmons, Diane Wendt

Discusses the role of athletic facilities in an institution’s attempts to equalize its sports programs for men and women in compliance with Title IX. Because Title IX outlines no specific requirements for facilities, colleges and universities must determine for themselves what "equitable" means. Recommends reviewing the Office of Civil Rights’ Investigators Manual, researching frequent Title IX violations relative to facilities, reviewing existing facilities-related litigation, and developing an awareness of broad issues related to athletics and fitness when planning for equitable sports facilities.
