This guide is designed to help college athletic administrators obtain a basic and working knowledge of the Title IX Education Amendments of 1972 in order to ensure that athletics programs are in compliance with the law. Separate sections of the report cover: (1) Title IX basics, outlining the components of the amendment and offering examples of how to be in compliance, including Office of Civil Rights policy clarifications; (2) current case law, which provides an in-depth look at critical developments in case law, particularly during the last four years; (3) athletics certification, which summarizes the Division I certification program and principles related to gender issues; (4) promotional ideas gathered from members, and a sampling of conference promotions; (5) "emerging" sports, which provides basic information on those sports that increase participation opportunities for female student-athletes. Included here also is an explanation of relevant National Collegiate Athletic Association legislation regarding sport sponsorship; and (6) a list of nonprofit legal and women's organizations, coaches' associations, and national governing bodies, as well as a list of periodicals about women in education and athletics.
