Ulrich, Celeste; Berlin, Pearl
This document is a supplementary component of a multicomponent workshop package designed for training and staff development efforts for postsecondary education personnel. The package was designed to assist college and university personnel to gain: (1) an understanding of the manifestations and the effects of sex discrimination and sex bias in education; (2) an understanding of the requirements of Title IX and its implementation; and (3) skills and capabilities for the development and implementation of policies, programs, and management systems to ensure educational equity. This workshop component serves as a reference manual for physical activity personnel. The first section introduces the concept of sex equity and its implications for colleges and universities. Section 2 discusses the methods of assessing current policies and procedures to determine if sex discrimination is present. Guideline questions are included. Section 3 deals with problems and issues traditionally found to be targets for change in physical education programs: (1) curriculum; (2) teaching, learning, and performing environment; (3) administration; (4) funding; and (5) social interaction. Implementation strategies and resources are suggested. The fourth section discusses behaviors and attitudes that encourage sex equity. (FG)
