[Title IX and Intercollegiate Athletics.]
Department of Health , Education, and Welfare, Washington., DC. Office of the Secretary.
Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments is the topic of these Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (DHEW) notices, which include both a proposed policy interpretation regarding intercollegiate athletic programs and a proposed amendment regarding federal regulation of school dress codes. The purpose of the first action is to ensure that colleges and universities understand their obligation to provide women an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential in athletic activities. The action establishes a two-part approach (immediate and long range) to compliance and enforcement which is designed to take account of the economic realities facing the nation's colleges. The purpose of the second action is to take DHEW out of the business of examining the rules imposed by local school authorities on the way students may dress or wear their hair. A statement by the Secretary of HEW on the proposed actions is also included. (DS)
